Infringe is a magazine dedicated to hair culture. It comes from the awareness that, all over the world, we give enormous value to hair. Some reasons we do this are purely aesthetic: millions of people spend hours and hours fixing their hair just to look more beautiful. But if we dig deeper, we realize that there is much more, it is not just about aesthetics, hair has social and cultural meanings linked to ideas concerning identity, gender, race and religion. In short, hair is a powerful symbol because it is an extension of our identity. Through our hair we express our individuality, conform to the crowd or show our dedication to a specific subculture, tribe or lifestyle.
Exploring the social and cultural impact of hair, Infringe travels the world in search of the most intriguing hair stories.
Issue 3 features fashion editorials, photo essays, artwork and interviews, which explore hair through creative disciplines.
Inside we find conversations with hair creatives including colorist legend Annie Humphreys and session star Paul Hanlon, as well as many of today's up and coming stars in the industry, including hairdressers, barbers, wigmakers and session workers. Exploring the social and cultural impact of hair, Infringe continues to travel the world in search of the most intriguing hair stories. Issue 3 includes photographer Tom Skipp and his exploration of the hidden world of the Ukrainian hair trade, anthropologist Emma Tarlo hosting a discussion on the art and politics of afro hair, and a peek into a unique Spanish museum entirely dedicated to hairdressers.
Among its pages we also visit the studios of some of today's most iconic creatives, including the British designer Zandra Rhodes, the Spanish hairdresser turned artist Lluis Llongueras and the producers of Russian twin dolls The Popovy Sisters.Dimensions: 25.4cm x 30, 95cm
