You Are Hair is an ongoing project that aims to root into the power, weight, and meaning of hair as seen in pop culture, film and television. It is run and curated by Eleanor Kagan and Kseniya Yarosh, the hosts of the femme-centric film podcast Bonnie & Maude.
The initial incarnation of this project was a live variety show on March 11, 2014 at Littlefield in Brooklyn, NY, featuring presentations by L.V. Anderson, Tessa Brown, Sophie Bushwick, Ophira Eisenberg, Aisha Harris, Allegra Oxborough and Cassie Wagler.
Join us as we continue to untangle common hair tropes, including fiery redheads, seductive blondes vs. mousy brunettes, single ladies with wild curls, groups of three or more women sporting different hairstyles, “natural” hair vs. “unnatural” hair, body hair neuroses, “haircuts of distress,” makeovers, and more.
