We stopped women on the street in New York to learn how their hair makes a statement.
"I'm pretty outgoing and I like to be with people — my hair just kind of works with that."
- Melissa D.
"My hair is squiggly, wild, and crazy. I think that it makes me approachable."
- Lauren A.
“How would I describe my hair? There's a lot of it, which is just like my personality.”
- Casey K.
“My hair reflects my personality. It's a little bit summery and it's a little different.”
- Rachel F.
“I've never dyed my hair, I've never touched it. It's unruly and it's crazy. I'm a wild kind of personality and everyone says redheads have the most fun. It's totally true.”
- Ann P.
“For so long straight hair was the thing, so you kind of felt a sisterhood with whoever had hair like you. But I stopped straightening it in college when I really became comfortable with myself.”
- Amanda W.
“When I was a little girl, I had curly hair and I didn’t appreciate my curls. Now I’ve embraced it — it makes me feel like my presence is just ‘Wow!’ every time I walk in a room.”
- Natasia M.
“I think my hair is a little performative. It can reveal my personality without me having to say anything.”
- Madeleine J.
“I’ve always had long hair. I cut it to a bob when I was in the second grade, and I’ve only cut it a couple of times after that. My hair has sort of become a part of me. It feels weird to cut it.”
- Erika J.
“I change up my hair a lot — it’s always time for a new beginning. I’m not a person who likes to stick with the same things. I like to switch things up from time to time. Right now it’s this. Next, I’m going to go blonde.”
- Chantal A.
“It took me a long time to get comfortable with my hair as thick as it is, but now I like it ‘cause I feel like it ties into my personality. Just like my hair I’m tough and stubborn, but if you put me under fire, I can do a whole lot.”
- Kiara H.
“I don’t think I have any one style. Living in the city, there's so many different fashions and looks and people walking around. It's a little bit of taking what I like, a little bit of everything.”
- Stephanie P.
