Ravishing Beauty Salon
Ravishing Beauty Salon is a genderfuck act of defiance and a proposal for a more generous future here and now in the shape of a queer redefining beauty salon and an open lip-sync stage, expanding concepts of beauty through smeared lipstick and sharp cut barber drawings on any hairy surface, hosted by Karin Keisu and Josse Thuresson. Ravishing Beauty Salon is an invitation to embody your desires and disturb society’s limiting expectations.
