The Haircut Makes the Wo[man]

AKA Haircuts For Art // FKA Chuubie’s Haircuts.

Complimentary Haircuts tailored to your complete whim and desire. Getting a self-portrait done doesn’t get much cooler than that.

By offering haircuts tailored to your complete whim and desire in unconventional pop-up performance locations, I want us to also think about your hair differently, and how this major thing on your head which you see first thing in the mirror every morning can also be an amazing tool and catalyst to push you toward the next goal or phase of your life.. if it just carried the right signifiers to take you there, like the flags and sail on your sailboat.

Hair is one of the most accessible and pivotal tools to your self-expression.
