Nashvegas weave

Generally, this site focuses on discarded weaves in St. Louis. But they truly are everywhere.

My friend Wendy found this colorful bit of hair in downtown Nashville last week and naturally thought of me. Thanks, Wendy!

Be like Wendy. Share your weaves.


Braids in the street

The final batch from the great weave harvest last week on North Tucker Boulevard, between Gay Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive:


More from last week's downtown haul

Here's Part 2 of my weave-hunting extravaganza last week, spotted on North Tucker Boulevard and Gay Street.

Incidentally, the hair is still there, nearly a week later. But it's resting in a puddle today. Sad face.


Purple weave, purple weave

After a while, regular hair-colored weaves get a little boring. That's why it's a nice diversion when someone loses a weave of a different color.

Alert Reader Evan (whose frequent-customer card is in the mail as we speak) spotted this lovely purple weave at 14th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive on Tuesday morning.

Don't be greedy. Share your weave sight-'ems with me.


Another weave at the $1.75 parking lot

After a weave-free weekend, my ship finally has come in. Tuesday morning, on my walk to work, I saw three separate weaves, all within about a block of each other.

Here's the first one, at North Tucker Boulevard and Gay Street. It's a location I've featured here before, but this is clearly a different specimen from last time.


This wig took the 7th Street exit

There's something symbolic about a discarded weave on an exit ramp, don't you think? Alert Reader Mike thought so. He shares this wig he found on the 7th Street exit ramp, off Interstate 55, I assume.


This weave's grip is amazing

More than a month ago, on Sept. 14, I shared this weave with you, on North Tucker Boulevard at Gay Street downtown.

Would you believe, more than a month later, it's still clinging to the pavement? True story. I've been monitoring it daily, but I wanted to wait until it had reached a worthy anniversary. (It's the journalist in me. WEAVE WATCH: ONE MONTH LATER.)


Middle-of-the-road weave: the deux

Remember yesterday's weave, from Gravois Avenue and Chippewa Street? I spotted this one no more than five minutes later, just across the intersection on Chippewa at Gravois

Forgive the poor lighting conditions. Apple hasn't yet invented an iPhone that's well suited for nighttime weave photography.


Middle-of-the-road weave

Friday evening was great for weave hunting. Within five minutes, I found two fine specimens. This one was sitting on the yellow paint on Gravois Avenue at Chippewa Street, in front of the QT

Look — you can even see my shadow in this first picture.

I'll show you the rest of Friday night's haul tomorrow.

In the meantime, if you see any weaves, share 'em with me.


Weaves love Target, too

On Saturday, I checked out the newly expanded and remodeled Target at the Brentwood Promenade. It's pretty fancy and has lots of fun features: an expanded grocery selection, futuristic shopping carts, discarded weaves ...

Have you seen any discarded hairpieces? Share them with me.


Get this weave to a hospital

A hospital — what is it?

A big building with patients, but that's not important because Alert Reader Brendan found this disgusting creature in the ER at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in the early-morning hours Oct. 2.

Found any weaves of your own? Send 'em to me.


Classy Grand Center weave

Three things struck me last night on my way to the Fox Theatre to see "The Phantom of the Opera":

  • A peek through the papered windows at Reggie's Backstage reveals that the venue doesn't appear to be reopening any time soon.
  • That sax player outside the theater is really mediocre.
  • This weave, which I had to poke with my foot:

It was in the grass at the Leon Strauss Memorial Park (Grand Avenue and Washington Boulevard), waiting to buy "Phantom" tickets from a scalper, I assume.


Raperville™ weave

Last week was a good week for reader submissions. Go, readers!

Here's one of my own, spotted on my walk to work Monday morning. I found it near the parking lot my coworkers and I affectionately refer to as Raperville, at 14th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive. It's not my usual route to the office — I took a different way for the sole purpose of a weave sighting, and it paid off.


Haiku Monday: visit from a weave

Alert Reader Rick is quite the weave hunter — and poet! "Not sure why, but lost weaves seem to inspire haiku in me," he tells us. He spotted this one at 13th Street and Shenandoah Avenue.

Weave waits on my stoop
Did I not answer the door?
Weave torn out in rage?


New at Pier 1 Imports: weaves

Today's gem comes to us from Alert Reader Jason: "I thought this thing was going to bite me when I first noticed it," he says. He spotted it outside the Pier 1 Imports at 13939 New Halls Ferry Road in Florissant.

Nice hunting! Don't forget: If you see a weave, I want to see, too.


Tequila makes her weave fall off

It's about time I award Alert Reader Evan with some sort of frequent-contributor punch card or somesuch. He shared this photo on Sunday with much enthusiasm:

She was just chillin' outside the front door to Wave Taco (1335 Convention Plaza), looking for a margarita in all the wrong places.

Thanks, Evan! And don't forget to share your own sightings with me.
