We love Hair, too! Hair'em Scare'em - a hairy creative collaboration with designers, illustrators and artists

The Gestalten publishing house’s latest publication is dedicated to hair. Countless designers from a range of disciplines including fashion and lifestyle, product or jewellery design, graphic design, photography, illustration or art were inspired to realise ‘hair’-raising creations.

Unbelievable beards, gruesome curtains, impressive body hair, anything you could think of. Hairs (lat. Pili, capillus, crinis, coma) are basically long strings of horn. They are primarily made up of keratin. Thus, hair only exists in the world of mammals.

Hair grows as long as one lives and even with coma patients, the hair growth never comes to a stop, as long as you have hair of your own of course. This might prove an explanation for the bleak and pragmatic hairstyle trends of Germany’s renowned leading civil servant faction.

Typical for ‘Gestalt’, this hairy offering is everything else but a mainstream hairstyle handbook. But it is an inspiration for every creative person who can imagine more than the bowl cut of Udo Waltz.
