For The Love of Hair

Filed under the bizarre and definitely expensive, this is a wedding gown that cost a whooping  £50,000 and it is made completely out of hair.  This creation was done by Thelma Madine for Bold Street hair salon Voodou in Liverpool UK.  If you are a fan of British TV, you may remember the show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on Channel 4 where Thelma was the bridal gown designer of choice by most travelling gypsies in Britain.

The gown itself was the brainchild of stylist Ryan Edwards and took 300 hours to make plus eight people involved in the process.  The dress contains 250 metres of human hair, plus tens of thousands of individual wefts and hair pieces as well as 1500 crystals and 12 underskirts.  The dress weighed approximately 15 stone (95kg!!) and is a size 6.
