The Salon

  • Jasmine De Silva

The editorial is titled The Salon. The images are a part of my personal work, aiming to create surreal settings through handmade set and prop design, drawing upon everyday beauty actions. The specific reference to hair within this series pinpoints the salon as a physical space we frequent to feed our ‘beautifying’ obsessions. By deconstructing the women within the images there is such a bold and striking sense of beauty when the hair is removed. We hold onto our hair, yet I have never seen a single woman with shaved or very short hair who doesn’t look incredibly beautiful with the hair security blanket stripped away.
