Welcome to the Can you make hair for me? collaborative art project
Can you make hair for me? is a collaborative art project by artist Eileen Powers with the goal of bringing joy and levity to those undergoing chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. I invite people to make hair for which I then model, style and photograph into a series of positive and coloful portraits.

Join in and make hair for me!
My goal for this project is have 100 people participate by making hair for me. The style, colors and construction are up to you. I only ask that you read the brief guidelines, use materials other than hair, and that the final piece not be a hat. I would like this to be a meaningful, collaborative project that I can share with others who have cancer and give them a moment of happiness in what can be a very long, soul-testing treatment.
