1. They're less work than basically every other hairdo

Unless you go completely gung-ho and make yourself a head blanket, the simple practicing of stitching some embroidery floss through a loom is easy enough to be part of "arts and crafts" time at summer camp.

Or, for simpler reasons, you can match your tapestry to clothing (for those of us who aren't philosophical about color choices.)

5. There are pretty much infinite possibilities

Designs, colors, shapes, etc. You can do it all. There's styles for the more radical hair lovers, and some simpler ones that can easily be removed before work the next morning.
