An Inside Look Into the Costumes of Hair

Hair 600

A Note from designer Shane Ballard:

In designing the costumes for Hair, my intention was to create a new vision for the iconic show. Many of the social and political themes of the 1960s and 1970s are still relevant today. It was my goal to channel the essence of the era rather than replicating it—bridging the past and the present through costume. Youth culture is often inspired by music and the artists who create it, so I looked to revolutionary artists like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Robert Plant, Tina Turner, Mick Jagger and Stevie Nicks as inspiration. My goal was to highlight each of our Tribe member’s unique spirit and beauty.
