Another example of a standard mannequin head is the model Debra from Celebrity. Celebrity is another brand of mannequins we carry at Giell.com. The main difference is that Joanne has a natural neck design, whereas Debra has a plastic band at the neck. Other than that, they are essentially made the same way.
