Ballyhoo Berlin

by James Glazebrook

Rock n’ roll hairdressers on the edge of Görlitzer Park in Kreuzberg. The place exudes cool, from the monochrome decor with details inspired by the 20s and 30s, to the Tarantino-esque cherry picked vintage soundtrack, to the English-speaking tattooed chicks that run the joint. That’s me in the background, getting my dickhead quiff tightened up. You can’t tell, but co-owner Helena did an amazing job – check out their website to make your appointment now.

When Zoë got me this lino- and woodcut set from RSVP for Christmas, I wanted to do a print of something iconic, something quintessentially Berlin. Naturally (predictably?), I chose the Fernsehturm – I know my linocut is rough and all, but hopefully you can tell that’s what it is! Next stop, woodcut – so watch this space… But if you want to see how it’s really done, check out Käthe Kollwitz, herself a Berlin icon.
