My monsters are stuck in quandary: they need to get human hair for a meal and I am stuck for ways to get them.
I thought of males having of having a shave-a-thon with waxed chests and legs and heads: the monsters could pinch the bags, but I'm stuck for the ladies. We women tend to do that kind of thing in privacy and many use an electric razor anyway.
There's a young boy who could pinch, but there's not much hair on an electric razor.
Any thoughts?  :help

What about the hair that falls out when we are brushing or washing it? I have half the hair I used to have and I'm sure your monster has taken it.

Hair cutting places would have lots of it.

Backyards. I used to cut my kids' hair out in the backyard when they were little.

The hair that's swept up off the floor at a beauty salon?

It's more bodily matter I need. Anyway, I've made a list:
Head
Eyebrows
Eyelashes
Ears
Moustache
Chin
Underarm
Chest
Back
Arms
Legs

That's omitting certain areas.
Granny has quite a few moles & shaving those hairs is proving difficult.
I've got a few, but I've not told them!
Thanks, guys.

Thinking outside the square - suburban birds' nests! They often incorporate the weirdest stuff into their nests. Who knows where they get it from!

Thanks, Julie. I've sent the beasts on a quest to find hair at the moment and they've ended attempting to shave the mole hairs of Granny's chin! Something my mother is always pointing out with me whenever I visit.  ::)

Would the monsters be cruel enough to cut off long pony tails and make a run for it?  Like a bleacher full of soccer players waiting for their turn on the field and he creeps up behind them!

Thanks.

Project Hair Share is back on after a much overdue rest. I've got the pony tails, pigs tails (idiotic monsters got that completely wrong!) and the following list.
Any additions? I want to chop them off! :yeah :muahaha
