As the cultural and social hubs of South Africa's townships, barbershops and salons serve not only as places to get your hair styled but as places to gather, gossip and come together as a community. Their signs showcase snappy vernacular designs, renditions of the haircuts on offer as well as typographic demonstrations of each shop's name. In South African Township Barbershops and Salons, Simon Weller presents his vivid photographs of these shops, their signage and their patrons alongside interviews with the proprietors, customers and sign makers.
