Andrew Barton Launches Hairdressing Exhibition
Celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton is spearheading an exhibition celebrating the history of hairdressing. The Beehives, Bobs and Blow-dries exhibition will launch in February next year in Andrew’s home town of Barnsley, Yorkshire at The Civic venue, following which the plan is to take it on a world tour.
The multimedia exhibition celebrates the creation of iconic hairstyles and showcases hair artistry, while also charting the cultural and economic shifts which have influenced significant hairstyles since the 1950s, with the hairdressing salon being the pillar of the community.
Said Andrew: “Hair is often the forgotten link when it comes to charting cultural changes in fashion and I have been thinking about how it could be recognised and globally appreciated for all it’s worth for a number of years. In this hair-focused exhibition we have decided to turn fashion on its head.”
