A Tumbleweave is a clump of artificial hair, typically found in hair extensions, that has somehow been forcibly removed from the wearer's head. The clump of hair becomes a Tumbleweave when it is discarded and free to blow around in the wind, like it's namesake, the Tumbleweed.
These can typically be found in parking lots, fairgrounds and live concerts.

They often times encompass other street paraphernalia including leaves, cigarette butts and chicken bones.
