The sculpture was designed by Anthony and Pat Mascolo, inspired by a hanging installation of vintage perfume bottles discovered in a design magazine.

The tools included are suspended from an 8ft customised circular steel frame and include iconic pieces from the 1920s to present day, such as 1950s Bakelite hairdryers and Burman clippers, brushes, afro combs, antique curling irons, down to individual bobbie pins. Sourced from all over the world over the course of three months, the items are individually suspended from the frame using thin copper wires. A jagged patchwork of colours and shapes, the piece is a chaotic and riotous love letter to the history of hairdressing.
