Christiaan Houtonbos (speaker)
Benedict J. Fernandez (host)


May 21 1985


In the first of two segments, hair stylist Christiaan Houtonbos discusses the process through which new looks emerge, change, and become dated over time. He offers professional advice on styling and speculates on future hairstyles. He then presents a slideshow of his work for fashion shows and converses with workshop participants about the images they are viewing together. In the second segment, Christiaan continues to discuss trends in hairstyles. Most of the recording is at a very low volume.
