    How Wigs Are Made From Donated Hair | The Making Of

    What you’re seeing is 200,000 ponytails of human hair. Combined, that’s at least 25 miles of hair. Dean Riskin: The hair is just busting out all over the place. Too much.

People are so excited about their product they want to just jump right into the designing the engineering details, schedules are tight, that seems like the right thing to do.
