Un/Cut is this amazing monograph by unconventional Antwerp hairstylist Pascal Van Loenhout, photographed by Charlie De Keersmaecker. Bright red hues against a backdrop of black and white images with pages that are cut in half at the book’s centre. The volume is a cross between the Isolated Heroes and Bandits lookbooks of Raf Simons and Alexander McQueen, in showcasing the lobs, bobs, bangs and blunt cuts, the “unhairdressy” looks of which, van Loenhout is the master.
“Minimal natural looking beauty has been trending for longer than we all can remember. This book presents that idea into something new, something unexpected. In the past we have heard words like 'raw' and 'edge', but UN/CUT explores finishing touches that demonstrate that there is no middle ground anymore. While Minimalism has reigned for many years, this book demonstrates Minimalism's new mood.” -Kevin Murphy
