Simon Webster and the SWH team

On Monday 13th November, at Hair Pieces Simon and the SWH Art Team will be causing a stir with their striking hair work. To celebrate 50yrs of The Wicker Man, Simon Webster has created three looks inspired by the 1973 film. The team cite key inspirations as: Pagan; Wicca; Druidry; Asatru… terms that refer to non-Christian/Abrahamic religions, beliefs. Consider birth, growth, death as a spiritual cycle. The feminine divine, identified as Goddess, Mother Earth, Pacha Mama. Then we have the respect for multiple gods… being polytheistic. All these themes are steeped in the history of ancient cultures across Britain, Ireland, Greece, Rome, Egypt, Scandinavia, Hungary, South America. It’s going to be some show!
