“Say goodbye to the fucking bad guy” – Hair for Heroes

Chills. It actually gave me chills. Glasgow has totally come alive for me again. It’s like there are all these amazingly talented people doing what they love doing, not giving a fuck and turning out some crazy sickening results. Hair Raiser – the Hair for Heroes fashion show last night at The Sub Club was just everything I want Glasgow to be. Tongue and cheek, just a little bit dirty and balls to the wall fucking fabulous. The lights dim and we hear the first few chords of Clint Mansell’s Lux Aeterna (which went through a phase of being used for everything  to evoke drama…football LUX AETERNA, high budget poorly scripted summer blockbluster, LUX AETERNA) but here is feels right. Dark, dramatic and just teetering on the edge of frantic. Lou Clave takes to the screen and pretty much calls everyone a bunch of arsholes, calling the crowd out – which they fucking love.
And then the show begins and it is everything I expected and more. Giant hair pieces weaved in to hearts and bows, long plaits trailing to the ground, multi coloured dip dyes, gold studs and frosted pinks. The girls dance down the run way and it’s all hips, teeth and attitude. Pure fucking sexy dirty Glasgow style. The evening feels raw and fun and it feels like Glasgow has been missing Clave with her “don’t fuck with me” attitude and rainbow collection of wigs.

The highlights for me? The purple and green antlers, the black wig with the gold studs and the aqua mermaid hair. The white plaited show piece was unreal, taking on a total surreal ethereal quality.
So say goodbye to the fucking bad guy. Hair is For Heroes is taking over!
