Event description
The Lengths We Go: Reflections on Hair is an exhibition that explores how society, culture, and identity influence hair practices.

About this event

Whether we realize it or not, hair affects us all; it is considered one of the most visible communicators of status, privilege, and culture, both today and throughout human history.

The Lengths We Go: Reflections on Hair explores how society, culture, and identity influence hair practices. Experience the evolution of North American hair trends from the 1900s to the present, and reflect on the different ways that hair is used to express oneself. Featuring discussions of iconic hairstyles and personal stories from the Mississauga community, this exhibition asks the question: what does hair mean to you?
