Amy spent six-months in residence at Open Barbers (May to October 2016), where she drew hair portraits of the salon’s clients.

These delicate and beautiful pictures trace their sitters’ hair only: no face shape, no identifying features. A selection of them are compiled, here, into a Look Book for the salon, to help clients choose their next style.

Open Barbers is a social enterprise which offers a personalised haircutting experience with a queer and trans friendly attitude. The salon offers a sliding scale of payment, inviting clients to pay what they can afford.

This Look Book is a lasting memory of Amy’s residency at Open Barbers: a glimpse into the lives and conversations she was part of, as well as a tool to help the salon and its clients as they continue to grow.
