An exploration through the fascinating and inventive possibilities of hair as material for artistic
expression. The fascinating beauty and inventive possibilities of hair are revolutionizing this
body-extending filament into one of the most attractive mediums for creative
experimentation in contemporary visual culture. Hair 'em Scare'em documents
this palpable trend into a visual sourcebook that presents a captivating collection
of hairy works in graphic design, photography, and illustration as well as interior
design, fashion, and jewelry design.
The examples in this book show the extraordinary use of hair as an intricately-
material metamorphosing into body-extending sculptures, exquisite jewelry,
and fashion. It also features adorning hair as decorative elements, photography
projects such as humorous portraits of fashionably playful mustaches and
beard typography to otherworldly illustrations of long unruly locks of curls.
The included works in Hair 'em Scare'em are the best indication of trends in hair
outside the mainstream and celebrate hair as a starting point for artistic expression
by the finest talents in cutting-edge art and design.
