The hair museum, something that started as a souvenir
The hair museum in the beautiful Cappadocia began by a potter who asked a friend to split a memory. She cut a strand that he kept. This is how the beautiful tradition that women continue who will cut a piece of their hair and give it to this man to increase his collection began. It is said that there are 16,000 scalps of all kinds per day and the number increases day by day.
Hair Museum is owned by Chez Galip, a celebrated master potter who has a workshop in the town and is now also a Guinness record for his museum. The collection is located in a cave where the walls can barely be recognized because they are populated with tufts of hair from thousands of women who are not anonymous, but who are perfectly identified with their names and addresses.
30 years ago, every woman who passed by and listened to the story, left her corresponding strand of hair and with this “symbolic” act, Chez got strands of different women from all over the world. That is one of the weirdest museums in the world, right?
