Hair Affair 2019

Unbelievable hair sculptures reach for the stars!

The sixth biennial Hair Affair: The Art of Hair brought a rotation of celestial bodies and a cluster of otherworldly creations, as Zodiac came to earth. High-flying hair sculptures, designed by premier Wisconsin-based salons, took center-stage as models descended the museum’s stunning glass staircase and mingled with guests in the MMoCA lobby. The event benefits MMoCA’s free exhibitions and education programs.
