With the help of images gathered from all four corners of the planet, and texts from contributors as diverse as philosopher Claudine Romeo and photographer Ali Mahdavi, the work unpicks and analyses hair trends, from ancient tribal gatherings to today’s fashion runways. Dates for the diary: the book will be released on October 27, followed by a book signing at colette on October 29 at 5:00 pm.
