Hair earrings: they come with their own comb

Hairearrings

"Yeah, I’m wearing earrings made out of hair. SO? You wanna make something of it?"

At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking that’s the model’s own hair hanging over her shoulders, and that she’s simply dip-dyed it, because she is "wacky" and cool like that.

You would be wrong, though, for if you look closely, you’ll see that these are, in fact, earrings. Hair earrings. Earrings made out of human hair. And we’re just not sure how we feel about that. On the one hand, it actually doesn’t look bad. Or at least, not as bad as the words "earrings made out of hair" would generally lead us to believe. On the other hand, though, the thought of having to comb our earrings is just a little bit odd, and we just know we’d get them caught on all kinds of things, thus pulling them painfully from our ears. Ouch.

We’re also not sure we’d pay $286 for ANY earrings, let alone these, but if you would, you can buy them here.

    This is… this… erm…
    WHAT?
    And $298? If I really did want these, I think it’d be a case of:
    – Letting my hair grow: Free (actually would save money on haircuts)
    – Pair of cheap earrings (call it 99p)
    – Superglue (about £3)
    And… same result!
    Where do you find these things, Amber? :O

    these are gross, I find them very creepy. And totally agree with Toni – much cheaper to make your own.

    it would be so easy for these to be yanked and have a ripped earlobe.

    Just what I want: waist-length ear hair. Don’t they make grooming tools to prevent this kind of thing?

    Amber, you’re fooled into thinking it doesn’t look bad, exactly because it looks like it’s her hair! just imagine it in a different color, it would be absolutely gross!

    I can’t explain why, but those earrings are sickening.

    I’ve seen those before, I think, but shorter, which wasn’t quite as bad, but they were dyed in that awful “coon-tail” pattern…-shudder- Anyhow, I don’t think they look that bad either, but that’s probably because it looks like she has really long, skinny pigtails. I’m not sure how I feel about this yet…I guess i’ll have to see where it goes!
