Wow, I stumbled across this on the Time website (see the full article here).
I’ve heard stories about the “Hair Wars” in Detroit. I have to say, they have some eye catching hairstyles and it would be incredibly interesting to attend. I was hoping to see more natural-eque styles, but I still got an eyeful. From the article:
This is not some eccentric reality show. This is Hair Wars, a 25-year-old Detroit tradition, this year featuring about 34 stylists and 300 models, that has become one of the premier hairstylist events in the U.S. The talent and exuberance on display takes the notion of an economically and psychologically depressed city, and turns it on its beautifully sculpted head. Hair salons are one of the few thriving businesses in Detroit, a hub of innovation in the $9 billion black-haircare industry, and Hair Wars can be a springboard to fame.
