In the surreal set-ups, hair creeps and pours from everywhere. It is comically exaggerated and grotesquely amplified in Wet Look, featuring a woman with long, matted underarm hair, drenched in sweat. With her tongue-in-cheek imagery, Drolen seeks to observe, then subvert, our beauty ideals in relation to hair. One example is the desire for longer eyelashes, which she notes that society views as “a marker of beauty – there are thousands of products that support this beauty standard. But at what point can lashes be too long and cross over to being terrifying?” Her response to this question is Longer Lashes, depicting a futile attempt at curling monstrously elongated, drooping eyelashes. Equal parts comedy and nightmare, Hair Pieces is a perfect reflection of our eternal love/hate relationship with our hair.
