Infringe Anthropology of Hair #03

INFRINGE is a platform dedicated to hair culture

Created by Anthony and Pat Mascolo, INFRINGE explores the world of hair across creative disciplines.

Across the globe, we place enormous value on hair. Some is purely aesthetic, and millions of us spend hours grooming and maintaining it. But if we dig deeper, we can come to understand its value beyond this, its social and cultural significance across universal subjects which affect us all, in one way or another. Inextricably linked to our ideas surrounding identity, gender, race and religion, hair is a powerful symbol. It is an extension of our identity, attitudes and beliefs.Through hair we express our individuality, conform to uniformity, or show our dedication to a specific subculture, tribe or lifestyle.
