diPietro Todd Salons and
Academy recently held an art opening by director of graphic design Brittany McCall. The exhibition, titled “Blonde on Blonde,” in tribute to the Bob Dylan album of the same name, was a conceptual exploration of beauty inspired by the hair styling of diPietro Todd Salons and Academy. “As an artist, I have always been inspired by hair and beauty, as well as the artists at diPietro Todd,” says McCall, who collaborated with photographer Alex Wein for “Blonde on Blonde.” Techniques used in the artwork included airbrushing washes and collage, which allowed for the re-engineering of pre-existing photographs and creating paintings. McCall enthuses, “It was seriously a dream come true to take the hair stylings of creative director Akemi Tamaribuchi and translate it into the language that I know—ﬁne art.”
