Just like pictures, a hairstyle can be worth a thousand words. For Laetitia Ky, this couldn’t be more true. The Ivory Coast native uses her locks to tell stories, shaping her hair into images on top of her head, proving that art comes in all forms.
Her latest beauty piece of work was created to join the #MeToo movement. Ky, who is also a budding fashion designer, posted a photo recently to Instagram of herself with a hair sculpture depicting two people. One is wearing a dress, and the other is lifting up that person’s dress (not made of hair). The dress-wearer’s arms are flailing. Her caption, which starts with #metoo, makes it clear that she is depicting sexual assault with her hair art.
