“A hairstyle as a statement. Hair as part of a person’s identity and why we recognize them.”
These almost philosophical reflections on hair cuts are not from us but from Christina Christoforou, a London based illustrator and artist who’s book “Whose Hair” has recently been published. The book contains 200 hand-drawn illustrations of the hairstyles of musicians, artists, movie stars, … leaving their faces blank. While flipping the pages, one has to agree with the author on the high correlation between a person’s character and his or her hairstyle, but at the same time you can also just see it as a “fun and ironic take on the global celebrity phenomenon” by guessing the name with each hair cut. The answers are at the back of the book :=)
