Takaya & his fabulous headdresses

Japanese artist Takaya adorns the heads of models with raw vegetables and blossoming flowers. The artist affixes the clusters of plants to styled hair, just like a florist would arrange a bunch of flowers, before pruning them with hairdressing scissors. This unusual form of decoration is used for both live performances and weddings.

Models appear on stage with fabric bags on their heads. The bags are removed and the artist attaches clusters of plants to their styled hair, in the same way that a florist might arrange a bunch of flowers, before pruning them with hairdressing scissors. The pieces are created during live performances, accompanied by stringed instruments playing an improvised score.
