Mixed Methods: Me and My Hair

Mixed Methods: Me and My Hair

It starts to feel like an obsession. It gets stronger every day. I search for images for just the right look. In the past, I'd scour hair magazines. More recently the internet. I chose a photo to bring to my stylist. The photo represents some new fantasy I've conjured...
