The hair of virgins

I live in Cape Town.

The other day i was driving up Strand Street, in the centre of town and I noticed this place:


It’s your pretty average, run of the mill South African beauty salon.

As the signs say, you can get your nails, hair or beauty done there.
Wait a second… what the fuck?


100% Virgin Human Hair Extensions?
Really? Seriously?
That’s some crazy shit.
That must be fucking expensive hair if it only comes from 100% virgins!
And what’s a 90% virgin? One has to ask.
So very many questions.
I’ve heard of cigars rolled in the thighs of virgins, but never this.
Do you think the hair comes with a certificate to officially declare that it comes from a genuine
virgin?
And is virgin hair somehow different to non virgin hair? I wouldn’t know, i can’t remember that far back. Bwahahahahahhaha!
They also had this sign on their door:

See, they’re looking for a ‘Beauty Theraphist’ and also a ‘Shampoo Operator’.
I’ve been applying shampoo my entire adult life, i wonder if that qualifies me as a ‘Shampoo Operator’?
Ha, one more time for kicks:


Cracks me up every time!

    But what does it really mean? Excuse the ‘duh’ question but… is it first time the hair is being used as extensions? (eeeeuw) did they grow it in a lab?
    Surely if I grow my hair long (takes years right?) and then cut it off and sell it for extensions = surely its years old, has been clubbing and in filthy recycled air containing airplanes etc etc – how can it still be ‘virgin’ hair? ugh.
