DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that you can get rich selling your own hair? Today, human hair can cost up to $700 per pound! That's a lot of money! It almost sounds unreal, right? But since the old days, wigs have been a lucrative business. The multimillion-dollar industry started by providing wigs to men to wear and appear more formal in affairs like court trials.
Expensive wigs back then were made of real human hair while the cheaper ones were made of animal hair or even vegetable fibers. Back then, wigs meant a lot in society. In fact, slave owners even cut and wore the hair of their slaves to up their social status (weird flex much?). Luxury wig makers of today source real human hair from third world countries located in Asia. There’s a place in India where people flock to for pilgrimage. They cut their hair and offer it to their god. Temple workers then collect the offerings and auction the hair. The temple earns up to 100 million dollars every year. People earn fat stacks just by collecting and processing hair! The wigs produced by the hair offerings come with are pretty expensive. But fear not, companies now offer alternatives for the strong demand of wigs in our society since it is now considered a fashion staple--for instance, in the cosplay industry. Cheap cosplay wigs can be found anywhere, but be sure to trust the some reliable cosplay sites. Perhaps, you can buy the best cosplay wigs when you have the moolah from selling your hair? But at the end of the day, all that matters is anyone can cosplay their favorite anime characters as long as they have the right costume regardless of the price tag.
