The Art of Hair

About the Project

The Art of Hair, one of a series of community-based art projects highlighting the vibrant community living and working in the Strategic Investment Area (SIA) of Charlottesville, focuses on hair stylists and barbers who practice their art in a wide variety of settings within the SIA. Through portraits and documentary images, the Art of Hair tells the story of these artists, their finely-honed skills, their boundless creativity, the intimate connections they establish with their clientele, and the environments in which they collaborate with their clients to create hairstyles that express their individuality.
