Cult hair

London

Staying with the London Branch of the family – in this case in the role of Childminder Extraordinaire – has inevitably meant a visit to the Horniman Museum. And here we came across a small, but quirky exhibition: Cult Hair, which ‘celebrates hair unrestrained by modern beauty standards’. William, 7; Zoë, 4 and I each chose our favourite. Who chose which, do you think?

I’m posting from my phone, and it seems to be taking charge of my photos in a way I wouldn’t choose. This may not end well …

  1. I don’t know any of you well enough but I kinda like the 2nd look especially! The tamed Afro wonder I had plenty of opportunities to admire when living in Paris when the ‘girls’ sat for a full day at the hairdressers or in mother’s kitchen to get prettied up to very high standards (wedding, birthday party, a special rendezvous….)

      1. We were invited to a great number of those events and I always was amazed by the art and diversity of hair styles, elaborate clothing, make ups and shoes. Their nails too were works if art!

  2. Thank you for introducing me to the The Horniman Museum. I have never heard it this place before. I love The Horniman Museum’s Mission- connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.” I have put this on my bucket list.

    1. If you ever come to London, it really is a Must See which few tourists visit, though it’s very popular indeed with Londoners. I loved as a child as much as my grandchildren love it now. It works extremely hard to remain relevant and informative in an accessible way.

  3. I had Zoe and William’s guesses the wrong way round but guessed yours. Hope the phone does nothing too terrible with your photos. Good luck with the childminding!

  4. What a fun exhibit and resulting post. I’d have voted correctly but read the other comments before I got to this point so that would be cheating! Have fun with the fam!!

  5. Personally, I am fan of ‘au naturel’ but I choose the braids. No dye for me, though I have been known to use gel to hold the curls in place. Enjoy your visit with your family.. savor the time. Peace.

  6. Super-duper hairdos. Not too surprised by favourites as age and/or gender are influential. Yellows for a 4 year old and spiky, devil-like for a 7 year old boy and the complex and intricate for the mature lady!

  7. Now that is difficult. I am going to say William, No 1; you, No 2, and Zoë the third. But it could be any way at all, so I am not confident. Now I’m off to look through the comments hoping to find hints/answers!
