Hairstory

the woman who

TO EARTH

Marina is a model who fell to New York from her native Serbia. After being directed to Hairstory by her agency, she arrived at the studio one day to have her color done. Marina has a unique and captivating look, one that is not the standard of beauty in our often-commercial driven culture, but one that instantly mesmerized us. Stylist Tony Kelley was so taken with her that he conceived a shoot inspired by the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth starring David Bowie as an alien who crash lands, seeking a way to ship water to his drought-ridden planet. Marina’s intriguing androgyny and originality made the results nothing short of magical. The story follows Marina’s character from isolation to assimilation and explores the tension between disguise and revelation – the ultimate transformation story. – Alexander Brebner
