Looking at the calendar for this month I see I only have two days off, this month is booked up with appointments, classes, work trips, a family trip, photo shoots, drag shows, and prepping for the Utah Pride Parade. Looking at the schedule I was worried about how I’m going to get my weekly blog posts, but then I was inspired by the muses. Maybe I can do a slight shift in how I am creating my posts for this month.
I am going to try something new, this may be implemented into other future posts. I am going to document the work I am doing this month through visual mediums, i.e. photographs and videos. Each week I will post a video or photographs of what projects I have been working on, this will hopefully be entertaining to see all the different elements of hair and makeup I am involved in. Up until this point I have used writing as the main catalyst to explore the geography of hair.
I’m very excited about this for many, first off it only makes sense for me to use more visuals since the vast majority of what I do in hair and makeup is visual. Secondly, this will be fun for me to try something new with the blog. Lastly, this will help me keep the flow of the blog going in my busy schedule.
Some of the posts for this month will include, the process of turning a man into a drag queen, different influences geography has on our hair, how hairdressers stay educated on trends in the world, and how American culture creates a melting pot of hair trends.
I am extremely excited to steer this blog into a more visual, documentary style for the next month. I hope you enjoy the posts to come. If you’ll excuse me, I need to start recording next week’s post.
Until next week,
THE GEOGRAPHY OF HAIR
The Geography of Hair is devoted to share experiences and stories in cosmetology and how it has affected people, myself, or us as a society.
