A hairdresser from Sunderland has created an evening gown made from recycled blonde locks.
Jodie Breeds from 24Carat in Sunderland designed the dress for the eco-friendly round of Miss England 2012.
Made to fit County Durham pageant entrant Holly Lyons, the dress is made from a mixture of donated and bought-in blonde hair.
Ten rows of hair were used to create the dress which cost hundreds of pounds to make.
It was put together by Miss Breeds' aunt who spent six hours sewing hair around a fabric slip.
Miss Breeds did ensure Sky Tyne and Wear the dress was not made from cuttings from the shop floor.
Miss England finalist Holly Lyons said: "It's gorgeous. I feel a million dollars in it.
"Everyone at the final loved it. Everyone wanted to wear the hair dress."
