ARTLAB - The Salon: Episode 2 ft. Crowezilla and The Lady Clipper
The Salon is a two-part web series about the black hair experience created by ARTLAB teens. Over the course of eight weeks, our production team learned tangible skills including video and audio production, art direction, interview strategies, and event publicity. This episode centers on conversations about transforming Black hair, what that looks like and how it feels. Through their own hair stories as well as interviews with Leslie Byers, (owner of Lady Clippers barber shop) and Crowezilla, (interdisciplinary hair artist) the girls explored the nuances that come from Black hair in transition. This project received support from the American Women's History Initiative.
