Only in America - Leila's Hair Museum, Independence
When Leila Cohoon tells people she owns a hair museum, they envision old curling irons, hair dyers, and other such tools. However, this is not the case. This unique museum displays antique jewellery and pictures made of human hair. Everything included in the museum is over 100 years old and qualifies as a true antique.
There are 159 wreaths and over 2,000 pieces of jewellery containing, or made of, human hair dating before 1900. There's hair that's been made into rings, watch fobs, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, chains, brooches, hat pins, bookmarks, and corsages.
