I shot these snapshots of my hair right before I took out my braids. I didn't even know there was a hair challenge. I edited them seperately under advanced editing before I realized it was expert editing so then I combined the two of them and tried to make it look like the larger me on top with the crazy hair was holding the smaller head in his hands and about to chomp down into it (I thought it looked like a head of cabbage..or I wear my brains on the outside) Glad people liked this as much as I did.

Speechless again because you didn't ribbon. This was way best in show, and in all the ways I can think of to judge a photo.

Very cool photograph...perfect angles on the subject(s)! I'll be curious to see if this is a composite of the same person or not. Great job!

Incredible image. I'm not sure how it makes me feel but it fits the project well and it is very aesthetically pleasing.

Nearly speechless. Composition, colour treatment, definition, and then the concept. Way beyond just hair.

One of the most creative shots in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. I can't stop laughing when I see this one. Beautiful tones and textures dangling in the black space. PP doesn't seem to distract in this case. Best I've seen in the challenge so far, you really move the attention to the hair on the two heads. I believe this one will top 10. Congrats.
