There’s definitely a lot to talk about when it comes to hair:

  • Hair is universal: All humans have hair (this already allow room for counter discourse to European colonial ideologies)/ Links all societies
  • Hair styles/types and their meanings are full of contradictions, across ethnic groups (like the competing discourses mentioned earlier)
  • Hair has social and political connections
  • Hair characterises different cultures, histories, and also stereotypes certain groups
  • Hair, identity, and networks
  • Hair and exchangability (something intimate and detachable)
  • Hair and spirituality
