Inuvialuit women are known to have worn coils of their husbands' hair attached to their own hair. These coils of hair are said to have been one of their most valuable possessions.

"The women dress their hair by raising it to the top of their head and tying it there in a knot or bun. They add to this bun all the discarded hair of their husbands (...). Out of those relics they fashion two big knots that they tie on either side of their own chignon ('topknot'). Two other rolls of hair hang over their chest in thick rolls tied with spirals of stringed blue glass beads." (Émile Petitot, quoted in Savoie, 1971: 177)
"Many women [...] had false hair to augment the size of [their hair]. Some had […] as much […] as would grow on a […]female head naturally […]. These sets of false hair were very expensive, in some cases equal to a new umiak in price. No one seems to know where this false hair came from [... ] Combings were kept and this may have been the source." (Vilhjalmur Stefansson, 1914, Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, vol. 14: p. 344)
