The Huli Wigmen of Papua, New Guinea are not only famous for being fierce warriors, they’re also known as wig makers.
To make their amazing wigs, the Huli grow out their hair. When their hair has enough length, the Huli begin to shape it. In order to prevent their hair flattening or losing its style, the Huli sleep on bricks. After about six months, the wig is large enough and ready-to-wear. The Huli cut the wig from their head using knives, and decorate the wigs with bird feathers.
The wigs are worn for cultural celebrations, like weddings, or for greeting and hanging with tourists.
