61 GENDERLESS-HAIR­CUT PRICES

Fashion (Canada) - - The Fuse List -

In March 2017, New York City-based hair­dresser Masami Hosono took to In­sta­gram to an­nounce that she was go­ing to squash the lu­di­crous price gaps tra­di­tion­ally seen be­tween men’s and women’s cuts and charge $80 for each at her sa­lon, Va­cancy Project. The Ja­panese ex­pat’s other mo­ti­va­tion was to cre­ate a space for many of her clients who iden­tify as gen­der-neu­tral or trans. The tim­ing was right, too. The 2016 U.S. elec­tion brought about a lot of neg­a­tive dis­cus­sion on iden­tity, and a non-judg­men­tal space was ex­actly what was needed.
