Hair Wars continued

I finished watching Hair World on PBS (mentioned in a previous post) and it really was a fun little show looking into a type of dress related activity I know little about. During the show, one of the contestants mentioned it was happening in the U.S. in ’08, and upon looking into it we found it’ll be in

Chicago, in March. If you’re in that area it might be a fabulous time if it’s open to the public.

Harlo then pointed me toward a book of images entitled Hair Wars by photographer David Yellen that captured the Detroit hair competitions I spoke of in my previous post. They are out-of-this-world in the best possible way.
