Hair is not just hair. It’s politics. It’s time in animation. It’s where your stories have roots and where you grow your narrative. Your hair is weathered by the elements of sun and wind and soil but it is also weathered by the condition of your soul. And when the soul asks the important questions in my life, my hair always answers: Cut the past out of your hair. And start again.

“Cut the past out of your hair. It’s a philosophy I have lived by for as long as I can remember. You see, in some cultures, your hair is the place where your experience lives”.
