I found this book in my collection ... seriously, it was in my bookshelf amongst Andre Gide, Simone De Beauvoir and Virginia Woolf ;) It was a new book when given to me, at the tender age of 11 (so it's from 1985) - I wonder whether it worked its way into my subconscious at a tender age?
I remember at the time thinking how CRAZY this book was - now it seems pretty normal to me, heh :P I'm so glad I kept it - it's probably the only thing I have kept from my childhood actually (apart from a couple of bad records).
Anyway, I LOVED this pic - when I finally got my undercut done at 19, this is what I was thinking of (even though I decided to shave all the way around):
And this one is a gorgeous example of skillful teasing ;)
How cool are these dreads?!
The rest of the book is full of buzz cuts, some hair-teasing tips (mousse!), and a couple of retro-inspired beehives. Good stuff!
