Salon Doo is a tongue-in-cheek look at society's obsession with the "hairdo". It is a spoof on our preoccupation with self- image as pure vanity. Beneath the humour and satire, however, the quest for ideal beauty by individuals and society is recognized; the natural impulse to preen by both males and females alike is celebrated. The action is set in a conceptual art unisex hair salon where the client enters and reveals a hairdo fantasy, thereby initiating a stunning make-over. The ultimate hairdo transformation turns out to be an individualized wig sculpture crafted as an art object in itself. The coiffure adventure concludes when the client flamboyantly struts down a fashion runway to the exuberant praise of fifteen Salon Doo hairstylists.
