About

An exhibition dedicated to the history of hairdressing and hair technology makes its international debut at The Civic in February 2018.

This unique collaboration between curator, renowned celebrity hair-stylist Andrew Barton and leading fashion research consultant and academic Donna Bevan, will explore the key hair-styles and technological innovations from the 1950s onwards.

The hairdressing salon and its role as a pillar of the community is explored, with the meaning of hair as a form of self-expression illustrated through local research and loans from national archives.

The exhibition charts the cultural and economic shifts which influenced keys hairstyles, using archival photography and modern and historical objects from collections including those of Unilever, Coty Inc, Sassoon, Dome Hair Products, Lambeth Archives, Museumand: The National Caribbean Heritage Museum and Wakefield Museums. A collection of wigs supplied by Banbury Posticheand inspired by the exhibition will be exclusively styled by Andrew Barton.

Not content with nostalgia, the exhibition outlines the advancements in design, technology and creativity and also looks forward to the future of hair and salon design.
