Hair Wars is a different idea of fashion and glamour than what is shown in the world of runway shows and magazines. That world ends up looking bland and anemic in comparison. The Fantasy Hairstyles in this book are proudly loud and outrageous. They express a desire to surpass the ordinary, to make something better, bigger, more extreme and more shockingly different than everybody else. To me, it's just as serious and creative as, for example, an Haute Couture show by John Galliano, with the exception that these designers constructed their creations in their kitchens, on shoestring budgets."
-Johanna Lenander, author

After attending a first Hair Wars show at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem in 2004, photographer David Yellen and fashion writer Johanna Lenander decided to document, through portraits and interviews, the creative power of the most acclaimed Fantasy Hair stylists nationally. Hair Wars, the first photography book to document this phenomenal art form, presents a series of 74 four-color photographs that were taken in several Hair Wars shows around the country between 2004 and 2006.
