Cheryl Byson took her inspiration from the seventies and demin fabric. Seventies styling was inoffensive exposing everyone’s individual beauty. Demin is a material that is made from an organic cotton plant that is harmless to any age, any gender and decade.
“Given my inspiration I researched the process of denim, how it is woven from cotton, sewing, and its dyeing process. Because it’s made from cotton a natural product, this reminded me of how we colour hair. Each hair has to be taken as an individual exposing its own hues because how it is naturally made up. The woven fabric and how it is cut is how I see hair. I wanted the hair itself to tell its own hip adventures. Frayed edges, worn textures ,my aim, creating this with razor cutting. Razor craft allows the hair to roam and for it to be seen for its true self,” says Cheryl.
