Life Can Get Hairy

BY KELLY O'LEARY
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

Some times life can get a little hairy. Kelly O'Leary knows this the best and took experience from Clueless, giving a variety of rad make-overs in an alternative matter.  When highschool didn't work out, hair school was the place to be with all the blonde highlights the world could tolerate.  

From embarassing hair accidents to the joy of her first child.  O'Leary has seen it all and took it with grain of salt and learned from all of it.  "It stays with you forever, and you learn from it".  Now addicted to working and pinterest (who isn't), she found her calling in vintage hair and pinup beauties.

Afropicks

BY SIMON SKINNER
@ VOL 65 ON MAR 27, 2019

These Afropick combs are inspired by people with afro hair. The picks are designed to suit various types of afro hair and hairstyles. Material: Acrylic plastic, incorporated hair, 3D-printed PLA plastic, 3D-printed steel. The Afropicks are made for those of us with afro hair and are a symbol of black pride to many people. By developing new picks (perhaps the first Swedish Afropicks in history), Simon Skinner wanted to contribute something that feels fun and also to say something important.
