MESHKATI hosts the press to discuss the remarkable role of hair in art history

Last week, Meshkati was delighted to host a press event on the theme of “Hair in Art History”, exploring the remarkable role hair has played in art throughout history.

In a fascinating presentation, art historian and curator Reine Ullman Okuliar revealed the cultural and political significance of hair by transporting the audience through time and space from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, to Samson and Delilah’s relation, to the works of contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol. The conclusion? For centuries hair has been – and still is – a source of seduction, power and strength.

The event took place at The Lanesborough where members of the press were invited for a private lunch, followed by a visit of our state-of-the-art hair centre.

Founder Amy Meshkati said: “The art of hair restoration requires creativity and the highest standards of quality in order to achieve results of which we are proud, and that exceed expectations. Every day, my team and I are reminded that our work is a privilege because it restores confidence, brings happiness or simply removes a burden.”

Media in attendance included Tatler, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Condé Nast Traveller, The World of Interior, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, Sotheby’s, The Rake and Hedge.
