Uh, simple misunderstandings like this are pretty common. I recently handed in a TPS report comprised entirely of toenails; turns out they wanted it on paper! Hahaha, no big deal!
Nice idea, poor execution. I mean, I've heard of giving people braids of your hair as a cultural family thing, but that's a different matter. Though, I guess hypothetically if you weaved cloth from your hair you would be able to make something like origami, but that'd take a lot of hair and lot of time.
Actually that was a fashion trend back in 1960 or 1970ies. I remember my mom had several professionally made hair flowers. Those were used to decorate beehive type of hairdo on very special occasions. And later when they went out of fashion - for child's play. Own hair or bought, didn't need much, a thin strand would be enough. Consisted 50:50 of hair and hairspray. As far as I understand they were made by laying a thin layer of hair on paper, spray, dry, fold/bend, cut in shape, remove paper. Not exactly as origami, they had soft bends not sharp folds.
Dude, it's a child, probably 6 or 7, they don't know any better so be easier on them christ. I can understand if this was a High School student, but this is just a child.
