Headless women in top Montreal salon.


(click ads) Death becomes her! A new head of hair! "How it works here at Käaz Coiffure, darling, is you first tell us exactly the style you want. Next, we saw your head off so you can go shop or eat or whatevs for an hour or so. Or if you prefer, you can sit here and pretend to read a magazine. Then when Sasha is finished, we suture your head—with a killer new 'do—back onto your neck. C'est bon, oui?" While it would be an equally disturbing campaign, wouldn't it at least make a smidgen more sense if the bodies and heads here were different women?

They must have been inspired by "Return to Oz" (the witch who has a cabinet full of heads to wear as the mood suits her).
Also, the model on the left could be my twin sister. Weird.

I think this is just meant to look like mannequins. I don't find it offensive.

I don't see how this could really be offensive.

I do, however, see how it could be weird and unappealing. But then, I think that's just the market they're going for.

People who are easily swayed by "artistic" things like stapling a shoe to a plank.
