Hair and Makeup

A very big thanks to Susan over at Florali who turned me on to these incredible images of the Omo People of Ethiopia. Thank you! I love them. I can't believe I've never seen them before. Talk about creativity and expression! Doesn't it look like so much fun to do? Really incredible. I believe these photos were taken by the German photographer Hans Silvester. You can find lots about his work online.

Kinda reminding me of the hair design in Anthropologie's March catalogue...

Awesome. Thanks for posting the Omo images. The Anthropologie ads are a great contrast, but are rather more reminiscent IMO of St Johns Day flowers woven into the hair in Scandinavian countries.

Love your site.
