Do not think your piece is hair?
It may be thread or yarn of some kind. Maybe linen thread, maybe cotton.
If it is embroidery, It may be a form of embroidery known as filet guipure or net darning.
The final analysis of your thread is this:
Take a straight pin and lift up some of the yarn and remove it.
Place it in a Pyrex dish or on heavy aluminum foil.
Burn it with a lighted match.
Cotton - burns completely - no ash
Linen - Fibers blacken and stay black.
Silk - fuses into a black ball
Rayon - part disappears, part stays black - no fused ball.
Wool and hair - burn with a sputter. Have odor of burning hair. Fuses black like silk does
