Hong Kong-based photographer Lo Cheuk Lun created a mesmerizing series that features different heads of hair mid-shampoo. The series, originally featured in Numero China, takes on an impersonal feel due to its stationery perspective and black and white hues.
Lo Cheuk Lun uses subtle movement in the patterns of the soapy hair, while the heads appear unattached to the human form in any way, which is also a feature encouraged by the use of lighting.
This abstract editorial is a refreshing look at a part of the beauty process that doesn't usually make it into the polished, finished product of the magazine, and could also be seen as a more extreme take on the wet hair trend.
