Hairway to heaven

The tri-weekly gallery solely devoted to hair

Sam Balmer and Mara Hockerman

Hair: the ultimate form of self-expression. Afros, undercuts, the “I woke up like this” look, the visible spectrum of colors and overall luscious locks adorn the heads of students and teachers, vastly contrasting the restrictions some schools place on appearance. TKC sets out to find those individuals who take hair, both facial and cranium-topping, to the next level, along with a name which describes their style and a glimpse into their lives regarding it.
