Swinging from trees or mounted to buildings, barbershop signs are fascinating examples of pop and folk art in Africa. Each sign was painted to communicate the unique personality of the barber, expressing both their hairdressing options, and the promises that might come with them. In this case, it's the promise of cuts that perform under pressure. Each figure is painted in extreme profile on this sign. Invoking god into the 7-Up and the 707 styles, this barber will make his customers into clean cut high performers.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
