Hair Wars began as an informal stage show in Detroit nightclubs, used as a quirky marketing tool for hair stylists in the mid 1980s. The showcase has since toured to nearly 20 cities, gaining international recognition and becoming a major platform for emerging and established stylists across the country.
Beginning at 6:05 p.m.—Hair Wars’ regular start time—VW Sunday Sessions presents a showcase of fantasy hair pieces created by an intergenerational group of artists and hair entertainers that stretch and blur the boundaries of fashion, humor, performance, sculpture, and spectacle. Participants selected in collaboration with David “Hump the Grinder” Humphries (founder of Hair Wars) include Dave Ray “The Beauty Surgeon,” Keith Matthews, and Joanne Petit-Frere. A selection of archival video from 1985 to the present will be shown throughout the day.Buy tickets/get more info now
