Hair Portraits

Having lived in a house with four other girls for 7 years, I guess you develop certain habits.

For example, I really like plaiting my friend Sally’s hair. She has lovely long blonde hair, unlike my uncontrollable

mop of awkward waves.

I enjoy inventing new hairstyles on her, and once plaited her hair, all around her head to make a cone thing on her head. That was impressive.

Some call me ‘Hairy Potter’; although the hairstyles are always slightly too extravagant to be introduced into the outside world.

Now I’ve moved out, I thought I’d take an afternoon to document some of our collaborations.

Please don’t judge me.
