About

Barber Boards from Ghana

You'll find these boards all over Ghana. They are your 'style' menu. Your hairdresser or barber might have a shop, a kiosk or even a chair and a broken mirror underneath a tree. Here, you don't go for 'The Rachel' or the 'Farrah Fawcett Flip', you get the 'Boeing 747' or the 'It pains you, why?'
As amusing as these boards are, they act as a barometer of the times and reflect current trends not only socially and commercially, but also politically. 'Boeing' for instance, was probably named and popularised as a hairstyle many years ago when international air travel became common in Ghana.
Painted using household oil paint on thin plywood, some are a bit worn, but all are precious and amusing one offs.
Treat yourself or someone else.
