What does hair say about your identity?

Under the theme of Entangled Stories, we investigate how hair can say something about your identity. Your hairstyle and your ideas about your hair are often based on your own choices, but these are shaped by what others consider to be good, beautiful and appropriate – consciously or unconsciously.

Perhaps you have your own opinions about hairstyles that are suitable for a certain age, gender, or profession. You may have a preference for keeping or removing body hair.

It is dangerous to think that hair is ‘easy’ to interpret. We may jump to conclusions about people based on their hair from within our own assumptions and ideals. Hair can contain hidden stories.
