Burning Man is less than one week away, and we’re enjoying the creativity it’s bringing to our shop. Just last weekend, one of our stylists braided bright red extensions into a client’s hair for the event.
What’s Burning Man, you ask? Well, it’s not all that you might think. It’s actually much more! Once a year, an eclectic gathering “dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance” takes place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The festivities are lead and created entirely by the attendees who have made the event so incredibly exciting and popular that it’s often news-worthy.
Funny thing is, we had no idea how we fit in. Fortunately, our clients are always one step ahead of us. And we were reminded by the aforementioned client with beautiful bright red braids, that we too are artists.
So, of course we fit in! We’re fortunate enough to contribute our art to the heads and faces of so many who count on us to bring out their very best selves. Whether it’s threading yarn through twists, cutting a perfect fade, or utilizing the brightest color combinations we have – art is art. And we’re so grateful to be even a small part of this major event.
The Burning Man culture was built on ten principles: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy.
We love doing hair because of all our Beautique Beauties who we learn so much from every single day. Thanks for teaching us something new! Have fun at Burning Man next week.
