I was intrigued with the facelessness of Tyanna’s portraits and what that did; it removed most of the information about that person’s appearance, yet there was still a hint of personality remaining in the hair of the portrait… or was it more than a hint? I began to think about the range of hairstyles I have worn in the past couple of years; how they altered my appearance and perceived personality.  With these ideas spinning in my head, I decided to examine this phenomena in my personality.  What does a hairstyle portray?  Why does a drastic hairstyle change often feel as though it is a huge change in our lives (for most) ?As I now look at these three different self-portraits, lacking my own face, I see three completely different women, yet all women that I can relate to.  The femme-fatale, the established woman, and the young rebel.  As the medium and display I have chosen recall women’s hobbies and aesthetics, I am beginning to reveal my own confusion with which “hairstyle” I want to wear… and do I have to wear just one?  Is there a way that these pieces of different women can come together in one?
