In his recent magazine piece, photographer Lo Cheuk Lun turns the common salon scene of shampooed hair into swirling designs of abstract art. Lun snapped pictures of sudsy heads from above, showing off bubbly hair that is swirled and teased in a variety of patterns. Barely recognizable as part of the human body at first glance, the hair designs nearly appear to be paintings hovering in the air.
The series was originally published as an editorial piece in Chinese beauty and fashion publication Numero Magazine. Contrary to the common conception that only finished, styled hair is attractive, Lun’s photos glorify the washing and styling process in a rare change of perspective.
