Traveling? Moving away? 


Historically, giving a lock of one's hair to someone dear has been considered a sign of love and devotion, especially before travels or a separation. 


And way back in Victorian times, it was common for family members to keep locks of hair from departed loved ones in lockets, sewn into journals and, used to make jewellery to ease the grieving process and bring comfort.
