Art & Hue has created a new collection of stylish pop art prints inspired by the sharp bobs and modernist cuts of the 1960s hairdressing revolution.
With the invention of the 60s bobs, geometric crops, and the five-point cut, women were liberated from the traditional time-consuming ritual of dressing hair – with a modernist haircut they could wash & go with their minimalist style falling perfectly into place.
Mary Quant, Twiggy, Nancy Kwan, Peggy Moffitt, and Mia Farrow defined modernity in the 1960s with their sharp short cuts that indicated they were free to spend their time on their life and not their hair.
Adopted by the Mod girls of Carnaby Street and the King’s Road, the short cuts complemented their minimalist wardrobe and Mod boyfriends, as well as enabling hair to look good even after a windswept jaunt on a Vespa or Lambretta.
There are no images more quintessentially 1960s than the photographs taken by Vic Singh of the sharp and minimalist hairstyles at the time. An official collaboration with Rex Shutterstock, Art & Hue has transformed the iconic photographs into stylish pop art prints, available in a choice of 17 colours and three sizes.
The Mod Hair collection is printed on 310gsm fine art archival matte paper, made from 100% cotton, using pigment inks which last several lifetimes.
