Check out these animalistic hairstyles constructed by the talented Nagi Noda. Although this talented artist may not be with us anymore, passing away at the young age of 35, her work still plays a valuable roll in our culture. Noda had her own sense of style that caught on and influenced everything from the fashion world to the entertainment industry. She worked on projects with Coca-Cola, designed hairstyles for popular films, and teamed up with Jack White from The White Stripes in a promotional video. In 2004, after not quite portraying the slim image that society expected from her, she directed the viral short “being appraised as an ex-fat girl” in which she took on the image of a poodle aerobics coach.
While many would consider her vision a little “out there,” few could deny or appreciate her unique and creative eye. Whether it was turning peoples expectations on their heads or creating beauty out of the vulnerability we all often have, Nagi Noda was a true trend setter. In fact, trend setting Lady Gaga herself even wore one of the kooky creations from the collection below, called “hair hats.” Made from weaves, real hair, and wire, they epitomize Nagi Noda’s fashionable, creative mind.
