Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hair-raising journey through the era when big was king.

In the beginning, there was the hair. And some of the hair was bad, but it was small. As men and women everywhere worked to improve and increase their lot, however, they stumbled onto some of humankind's most miraculous innovations: spray, gel, mousse, crimping irons, and of course, the perm. With these new tools, people everywhere suddenly found themselves able to coax their lank, lifeless tresses toward glorious new heights. The age of big hair had begun.

Now, the greatest of these bouffants, afros, rakes, beehives, and Flock-of-Seagulls have been plucked from their spots in hairdressers' windows and given the respect they so clearly demand. Bigger and badder than you ever dreamed possible, Big Hair goes out to all those people of yesteryear who were unafraid to think BIG.

Review:

"The new frontier of collecting is lowly, mundane stuff overlooked by the average eye. In the tradition of Martin Parr's celebrated Boring Postcards series comes Bad Hair. Designed for teensy coffee tables, Bad Hair is a gallery of deeply uncool coiffure options rescued from outmoded '70s hair salon posters." Joy Press, The Village Voice

Synopsis:

Collected in book form for the first--and possibly the last--time are hideous hairstyles culled from the chairs of hairdressers around the world. Photos throughout.
