TPR Travel Tip – Hair museum in Avanos, Cappadochia

When my friend Lukas told me about the Hair museum from Avanos for the first time I could not really picture it. A strain of hair cut from every female visitor and attached to a wall? Thousands of samples of hair handing from the walls? Sounds strange, right? Some people will like the idea, some people will be puzzled, some will be disgusted ;-)))) But you definitely should come to see that with your own eyes this unusual museum.

As the Chez Galip website says: In 1979 Galip had the idea of collecting the hair of women and creating a Hair Museum – the purpose of which was to raise course participation. The idea received a lot of attention from both local and foreign women. This collection has found its place into the Guiness Book of Records with more than 16.000 different hair examples and their addresses.
