Super 16: Beautiful Tresses

hair_mosaic

I got my hair cut last week which would explain why I’m suddenly obsessed with photographs of hair! What fascinates me about the Super 16 this week is how we don’t need to see a person’s face to know something about them – their hair can tell stories too. Each of these images draws me in and makes me wonder about the girl in the photograph; next time you take a photograph of someone, try capturing their personality by shooting just their hair. Happy pony tails and thoughtful plaits, messy locks and tidy bangs, it’s all there in the secret life of hair.

 

I’ll see you all again next week! ~ Susannah x

I just got my hair cut too Susannah. So true about hair telling stories without seeing a face. Great post!

There is much mystery in this piece, http://www.flickr.com/photos/haeshu/2556306448/
I think you are on to something here. All the photos you chose are delightful.
