My Pictures in Words | Michelle Summers Davies

December 01, 2023


“Achromatopsia is a condition that limits vision to black, white and shades of grey. My goal was to blend strength with a gentle touch, fusing structure and creativity. By working with diverse hair textures, I wanted to evoke both strength and fluidity, shaping the hair into imaginative forms. The notion of the turtle’s contrasting elements – a resilient shell and a soft core – served as a guiding principle, allowing each style to come alive. From daring fringes to graceful curls and a flawless canvas, the absence of colour highlights the importance of recognising the spectrum of shades between extremes. This collection is a reflection of my journey as a barber, harking back to my early days when I first fell in love with bold angles and clean lines. Those initial influences are deeply ingrained in this collection, with movement infused throughout.”
