While the title of the series Hair Pieces by Rebecca Drolen, a photographer currently based in Athens, Georgia, may drudge up images of ill-fitted toupees, it actually adheres to an even more surreal sense of the term. It re-imagines classic coifs in unreal situations. Whether trailing from a models armpit or hanging from a brush in place of bristles, common hairstyles are given uncommon homes.

Hair Pieces by Rebecca Drolen is meant to explore the relationship people humans and their hair. Beautiful Decay observes, "With clever titles like Hair Tie and Ear Hair, Drolen’s images read in part as a modern take on 1960s feminist photography; her carefully staged self-portraits are shot in black and white, revealing the rich grays of her vintage garments, retro decor, and and outdated shears."
