One of the great elements of Hair Fair is that it asks for more participation from us than just shopping, blogging or building.

When people lose their hair, that signifier that said they are chic, or sporty, or rebellious is lost and replaced with a new signifier – Cancer Patient.

There are 29 styles and you can see the full size pictures in this Flickr set.
