Joanne Pief : Redressing the Crown

Its not every day you come across breathtaking hair design presented as true works of art. Brooklyn born Joanne Piéf needs no introduction as her master craft speaks for itself, unsure on whether to call herself a Hair Sculptress, Braidologist or Hair Designer, Piéf presents a series of hair sculptures titled Redressing the Crown.

“We speak through our hair, consciously or unconsciously,” she explains.

Through Redressing The Crown, Joanne aims for this series to connect people and cultures, because braiding is not only about individuality, but also about communities and cultures. “Strand by strand, Pief weaves in her different philosophies, beliefs and ideologies creating sculptures that she hopes will help shift people’s perceptions of how the crown should be dressed.”
