The DKUK pop-up salon: art installation meets hairdo heaven

Posted at 4:30 pm, August 5, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Shopping & Style

DKUK is not your standard hair ‘salon’. In a return to the historical definition of the word, artist and trained hairdresser Daniel Kelly has transformed the lair of lady’s mags, celeb culture and vanity-excess into a social and intellectual space for the expression of upcoming writers and artists.

Clients that book hair treatments will leave with more than their tresses tussled as the gallery exhibits a rolling installation of evocative time-based works from the likes of Mark Beldan, Toby Ziegler, Chips for the Poor, and many more.

Though guests are encouraged to give their hair a wash before their haircut (the space somewhat lacks sinks), it is surely a good opportunity to turn your standard ‘inch-off-the-bottom’ into something far more stimulating. Kitty Knowles

The DKUK pop-up salon will be at the Ancient & Modern Gallery, Whitecross Street, throughout August. Book your appointment here.
