A hairdressing friend of mine recently sent me to look at the styles being created at a salon called WIP-Hairport in Lisbon. I thought I’d share their flickr and wordpress pages with you all so you could view the magic firsthand. I feel as if WIP-Hairport is a kindred salon to Vain, and love that they are going out on a beautiful limb with their creations.
It seems that they are looking to hire creative international stylist!. So tempting, I must say. Sunny and warm southern Europe seems like an incredible dream as we sit through winter in Seattle. I have always wanted to at least visit Lisbon. Now I am reignited to save for a trip someday. I need a WIP-Hairport cut!
You know, I was thinking recently about the complicated women’s hairstyles of the 1940s. Everyone was on rations, so people got creative with the one thing they had that could afford shifting expression. Hair grew and shoulder pads followed. I certainly hope to see a similar spirit during the next several months of economic hardship. No one is going to notice that you’re wearing tattered clothing when your hair is a work of art.
