What can be creatively done with about half a metre of hair? [More:]
For various reasons I've decided to chop my hair short. This will leave me with a piece of hair almost 50cms long and almost all of the same length.

Should I keep it to make a wig out of when I'm old? Make it into strings to hang necklaces from? Make paint brushes out of it?

Gomi, I thought you were in Japan. Throw it over your face, put on some pale make up, and make some J-horror.

You can also store it in your purse and drop single hairs in random places (like public washrooms) to gross people out.

Donate it. And. It did good by a couple of friends children.

Unfortunately it can't be donated because it has seen several colourings (T_T).

* current colour is black/dark brown

Well shit! Then dye your hair a different colour and carry the cut stuff in your purse for an occasional free lunch.

Sorry shoulda mentioned that in the initial post.

If I were you, I would separate it into strands and weave it into a bracelet or an inlay for a jewelry box. Hair mementos are creepy old cool. I won't take much more than some lightweight metal to crimp it together in bands or panels. I don't find it too weird and creepy to make it into something to give the sprout, to signify this time of, well, sacrifice!

Miko she apparently can't donate coloured hair. Which kind of sucks but there you go.

Yeah I looked into donation a while ago and any chemically treated and or hair with grey in it is no good.

Dang, when I chopped off that much hair in December I donated it right then and there. They are pretty strict with the type of hair they will take. I was sad that I didn't bring it home, at least for a photo, and mail it myself.

You could make a little pillow out of it. I love the paintbrush idea, and wonder if it would work for makeup brushes. Put it in a brooch and wear it on your lapel, claim it's from an ancient relative.

Tape it to your armpits and run around your front yard flapping your arms and cackling.
