Design Festa at Tokyo Big Sight - Linh’s Big Hair

Linh wasn't sure what to expect from the Design Festa Art Event held at Tokyo Big Sight, since I'd mentioned that they'd be lots of design and crafty things to see. However, it didn't take long for her to notice a creative hairdressing space - the kind of exhibitor we weren't expecting.

After chatting with the (stylish) stylists there and hesitating (briefly), Linh decided to take the plunge and get her hair puffed up (not cut) for 1,000 JPY (£6.75). At that cost, it was inexpensive enough to try out the "big hair" image for a day.

Linh's declaration of wanting to sport a Japanese hairstyle only led to the main hairdressing dude to state that he was Korean. Nevertheless, helped by his assistant, he got on professionally with taking Linh's current style apart and applying heat irons and several cans of hairspray over a quarter of an hour.

Check out this video below for the highlights.



Here are the results. The guy kept his dark glasses on all the time, so I don't know if that made any difference to the finished design.

During the process, Linh became the subject of several passing photographers, and throughout the day, I did notice more photographers trying to take sneaky shots of her.
