Help Fly on the Wall Reunite Lost Hairpieces With Their Owners #3

Posted By on Wed, Jul 8, 2015 at 1:32 PM

Fly on the Wall noticed that a lot of people in the Memphis area have been losing their wigs, weaves and toupees.Everywhere we looked we saw them, abandoned and rotting like road-possums. We asked readers not to ignore this growing epidemic and our wonderful readers have responded by sending in pictures of lost bouffants and lonely extensions. Each week we post these pictures in the pursuit of our dream, to reunite some good people with their good hair.

It makes us sad to see this trail of long, lovely extensions. They were discovered in the hallway of an area school following an altercation.

This modest wad of curls was discovered near a Midtown pool where, it is believed, some skinny-dipping may have occurred. Wet socks were discovered nearby.

A number of readers have asked Fly on the Wall to consider a similar feature for single shoes lost along the side of the road. They've wondered where these shoes might actually come from, and how so many matched sets have come to be separated. Fact is, most shoes are originally lost in pairs, but one is often consumed by a pack of hungry tumbleweaves, which are an invasive, non-indigenous predator. This shot was taken outside Nashville's Hot Chicken festival by a former Memphian alerting us to the fact that the epidemic is spreading.

If this is your hair or you know who it belongs to please contact Fly on the Wall via comments and we'll give you all the information we have pertaining to where the hair was last seen. We cannot promise a successful reunion because, as we've said before, nobody wants to touch that.
