Cut around the world

The mission is to cut people’s hair at special places – hidden or public, urban or nature. There are so many things to learn from each other and hairdressing is the perfect tool to start the conversation. I want to expand and explore working places to find new possibilities of the hairdressers world.

Description

Hairstyling is the perfect medium to get very close to each others social systems. This is why I decided to start an experiment of cultural exchange and develop a new way of hairdressing.
Next to my work as a hairdresser and Make-up Artist I studied at the University of Vienna. Geography and Development Studies are my subjects and with this project I am joining all my interests.
As a hairdresser you work really close with people – they tell you about their problems, belongings, wishes, stories – you start to take part on their social life. “cut around the world* leaves the salon, and opens the public space to show up that this handcraft can be done on every place on earth, in different situation with a team of local hairdressers. It’s about opening our hearts and minds for the spirit of charity (but also to locate stereotypes in our society). Leaving all cultural borders behind and get close with people to expand your way of thinking, your way of living, your way of being. This project opens the spaces for dialogs aside from official media and daily news – find out what you want to know, directly. *cut around the world* is also about showing and learning different styles & technics from every hairdresser who wanna participate at a this pop-up-salon and be part of social activism.
“cut around the world” needs to be supported by people. It’s not working without eacht other. The projects is looking for clients, hairdressers, musicians or photographers who want to join the pop-up-hairsalon. So, the way of payment is based on individual way of giving. The project is offering the haircut, and you can share what feels free to give – and this has not to be related to money 😉
*cut around the world* is an experiment to spread the idea of freedom without the pressure of any capitalistic surroundings.

The project took place in New York, Barcelona, Ubud and in Vienna.
