INFRINGE Hardback Issue 1

Issue 1:

INFRINGE is the Anthropology of Hair

What does your hair say about you? Across the globe, we place enormous value on hair. At first glance, this could be dismissed as being purely aesthetic; millions of us spend hours grooming, cutting and colouring our hair. But if we dig deeper, we can come to understand its value beyond this. Hair has a reach across universal subjects which affect us all, it is inextricably linked to our ideas surrounding culture, gender, race, religion, life and death. Through hair we can express our individuality, conform to uniformity, or show our dedication to a specific subculture, tribe or lifestyle.

INFRINGE is a visual feast of art, design, and fashion all based around the exploration of hair culture. Issue 1 presents photo-essays, fashion editorials, artworks and interviews, which explore hair across creative disciplines. We meet the hairdressers, barbers and wigmakers whose livelihoods depend upon this fibre. We delve into the works of photographers documenting cultural practices involving hair across the globe. We listen to the artists, activists and writers who challenge perceptions of hair and reveal how reflective it is of our often contradictory beauty ideals. Hair taboos are examined - why is it that some hair is deemed desirable, some repulsive? Ever-growing, hair denotes life, as well as being the final physical remnant that survives us after death. Hair can be a poignant memento, a statement, a medium for craft and much more. Brought to you by hairdressing icons Anthony and Pat Mascolo, INFRINGE is the Anthropology of Hair.

“Hair is a powerful symbol, revealing our identities, attitudes and beliefs.”

Founded by hair industry heavyweights Anthony and Pat Mascolo, INFRINGE started life as an online platform ( dedicated to showcasing hair creativity in all its forms. The first print issue was released in June 2017.

Editor’s Note

“When we launched our first printed issue of INFRINGE in 2017, we were so excited to share our ongoing exploration of the vast world of hair culture and creativity. Issue 1 was absolutely packed full of stories focusing on the fringes of our industry, and dug into the lesser-seen elements of the hair world.  At the back of our minds we had a niggling worry… would we run out of hair stories to tell? Far from it - we’ve been completely overwhelmed with the wonderful response to the first issue, and the many, many people who have got in touch from all over the world since its release, to share their own hair stories. If anything, it’s made us realise when it comes to the world of hair, we’ve barely even scratched the surface. It was with this in mind that we set off to start Issue 2.”
