Hair stylist makes statues out of human hair

A Chinese hairdresser recycles human hair into art.

Huang Xin is making a collection of tigers for the upcoming Chinese lunar year of the tiger.

Huang saves the hair he cuts, sometimes dyes and bleaches it and then applies it on a tiger-like frame.

He says it takes about 30 people to provide about two pounds of hair.

He's made six small tigers and is working on one that's about six feet long.

The number six is good luck in Chinese culture.
