Scary, Hairy Jewelry Proliferates

By

The Paris spring runways were covered in hair, from sky-high wigs to Cousin Itt wannabes. Well, that trend already seems to be catching on. Above you see a smattering of accessories made from human hair. What, you don't want to sport an eyelash necklace? We'll admit the idea of wearing someone else's hair is a tad creepy. But it doesn't seem to be going anywhere, so get used to it. And maybe you, too, will embrace that deliciously icky feeling of random hair on your face. Here's what's pictured above.
