The Higher the Hair, the Closer to God

In a couple of hours I’ll be making a post about urban hair carnage (by popular request… from one of my co-editors), so I thought I’d build up some anticipation by making a quick post celebrating the kind of hair engineering we all know and love. It’s been a while since we featured a nice, sculptural-looking ‘do, so here you go. Hairstyle by Andreas-H, photo by Kris Baum, makeup by Corrine, model unknown Aileen Lorenz. One more image, after the jump. Check back in a few hours to see where this kind of hairstyle goes to die.

    Looks remarkably similar to a piece of organic matter I found on a Hastings, UK beach.

    First of all, I am falling more and more in love with Coilhouse; often I am staggered by the beauty that you provide through your website. I search the magazine stores of Vancouver in the vain hope of finding your beautiful-looking magazine for sale here. Alas, my quest thus far has been in vain. Someday, I shall purchase for myself a copy via your delicious website.

    I just wanted you to know that.

    Second of all, this photograph, this hairstyle, is a remarkable work of art. Thank-you for sharing it with us.

    I just wanted you to know that, too.

    Please keep up the beautiful work. I love what you do, and will continue to come by your website to see what you have to offer me/us.

    the bricoleur: WOW, the resemblance IS uncanny!

    Mythical Man: Thank you, sir! We’re happy to have you here.

    This is such a wonderful image!

    The organic flow of the hair is beautifully artificial – such a superb juxtaposition.
