Beauty Shop Culture Project

This semester is going to be epic! I’ll be doing observational drawings of barbershops and beauty salons in the Bloomington-Normal area to capture the spirit of salon culture. Not only will I depict the facilities and people, I also want to convey the heritage of how these businesses have functioned in the community. So far I’ve reached out to Shorty’s Barber Shop, Underground Barbershop, Beauty-N-U Salon, and Bloomington Normal Barber College Inc (BNBC)….and the response was great! I spent time with the barbers at BNBC yesterday and I already felt like part of the shop family. I’ll keep you all posted on the progress 🙂
