Saturday Girl is a series of portraits of young women – teenagers – in Leeds, specifically as seen through their hairstyles. It is an exploration of hair and its cultural meaning for young women, and how they experience and use the power inherent in becoming visible as women. Saturday Girl was conceived after seeing so many young women in Leeds with ‘big hair’; hair teased and back-combed, styled and extended with hairpieces and wigs. The project is an exploration of undercurrents in culture, the unspoken signs that tell of our values and tribe identities and how these things burst forth (whether we intend them to or not) in self-expression.
