Ever wonder what happens to all the practice heads used at beauty schools? I never really put much thought into it...until now. Slightly creepy (perfect for Halloween!), these potted heads were spotted outside of a salon in Japan.

This photo, taken from Flickr member typester, was snapped in Kamakuram, a city in Kanagawa, Japan (a little south west of Tokyo). Just think: if you had one of these, it'd be like having your own personal Chia Pet. Fall mums would make them sport a nice afro and ferns would give them more of a dreadlock feel.

What do you think of the look? A little too creepy, or just enough fun to be cool? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
