Weird & Amazing Collection of
Antique Hair Art

Leila Cohoon A Hairstylist

Visited an Antique Dealer in 1956 and discovered a (6″x6″) Gold Frame with a small wreath of human air.

The discovery ignited a need and urgency to preserve similar art collections, explaining why she began collecting antique hair art.

Today, Leila owns a hair museum. The only one of its kind worldwide.



The Museum was quickly filled up with more antique hair art collection. This was attributed to Leila’s commitment to hair and growing passion in the art collection.

Later in 2005 the museum moved to a new, bigger location to accommodate Leila’s thriving and increasing number of collection.

The wreath are fixed onto a mat board material with tucked in frames. Hun salon-style, the wreaths are place one on top of another with little space left between them.

With a personal, private, sacred, and mausoleum like appearance, the museum doesn’t look as if it’s meant for an audience.
