Beehives, Bobs & Blowdries

First of its kind exhibition, Beehives, Bobs & Blowdries, heads to the Caygill Rooms this Autumn.

Curated by fashion research consultant and senior academic, at Solent University, Donna Bevan (FRSA) and renowned, award-winning hairdresser Andrew Barton (Hon Doc), this exhibition celebrates the art and skills of hairdressing along with some of the most iconic looks of the past 70 years. Often overlooked, fashion would not be complete without that iconic hair style. 

After a hugely successful launch in 2018 Donna and Andrew have brought this exhibition back with the ambition to re-frame the hair and fashion story with additional content, and a focus on sustainability and hair futures.

This unique exhibition charts the hairstyles through the decades integrating the key innovations in the hair industry, the rituals of the salon environment, technological breakthroughs in salon products and the influence of hair fashion trends and subcultural styles.

Beehives, Bobs & Blowdries is sponsored by L’Oreal Professionnel plus Andrew Barton London Education (ABLE), Banbury Postiche, Haircuts 4 Homeless, Little Princess Trust, Racoon International, SLBPR and Solent University.
