Locke in Perfect Hair

Hew Locke is a British contemporary visual artist whose work spans all mediums. Amongst his sculptures is an ongoing series called House of Windsor that he started in 2002. His use of found objects and shrubbery to depict Queen Elizabeth II’s head takes me back to the first time I saw Jeff Koons’ Topiary Dog seated in front of the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao as a child.

I vaguely recall a fashion spread a few month’s back that used Locke’s How Do You Want Me series (pictured below) as inspiration to showcase the abundance of patterns for Fall.

It is that time again to talk about hair. Although Locke’s art is striking, no one likes their own hair to feel as dry as arid flowers and leaves, which is why Paul Mitchell’s Crunch-Free Curl Definer (pictured below) is a lifesaver come winter. The dual-formula made of hydrating cream and smoothing gel tames hair and banishes frizz.
