The last time I went to see my friend Carlos Ortiz to have my hair cut ( and colored but tell anyone ), I had some time on my hands while waiting for all the magic to dry and took some photographs of his amazing space, the Candy Apple Salon
I’ve been going to Carlos for a few years now, and I always enjoy being there because his space is beautifully and thoughtfully filled with art, music and people that Carlos loves. He has this super fantastic collection on Chicano Artwork, not to mention a mean collection of photography books.
We often talk about photography and art, and recently Carlos shared the book “Hair Wars” with me. Now these are some very wild hair styles and costumes and the models are brave women. No retouching here people, all their stretch marks, scars, everything out there for the world to see. I love it!
