Tools of The Trade features a diverse and colourful array of hairdressing tools, spanning from the 1920s to the 1990s. The photo series provides a detailed look at the hairdressing world through the ages. While most of the tools are no longer used in present day hairdressing, to a hairdresser they are instantly recognisable and familiar. They evoke an element of nostalgia, and Mascolo hopes that the images will engage the viewer on this level, perhaps bringing forth “memories from when these were everyday objects rather than relics from a bygone era. They may bring to mind grandmothers’ or mothers’ dressing tables… first haircuts… or for some the beginnings of their own careers in hairdressing”.
