Going Over is an illustrated meditation on the global marketing of masculinity through hair, hair products and signature hairstyles, focusing on the microcosm of Kuwait and the ‘exiting of trends’ by Kuwati youth, in contrast with the hair conservatism of an older generation.In this presentation, Al Qadiri and Al Gharaballi explore historic comparisons, hair regulation reports from Iran and a case study conducted in Kuwait; the discussion will expose the delicate relationship between hair and culture and, more specifically, between barber and client.
