Nice Hair, Shame About Your Face takes its title from a comment that a 'friend' made to me around the age of 9.

Full quote: You know Jocelyn, you have such nice hair… shame about your face.

After seeing ‘before and after’ pictures of a woman on Instagram where the after had been unrealistically edited, I thought about the pressure that people now feel to look beautiful both online and in real life. Not long after that I discovered the world of selfie editing apps where you can change every physical aspect of yourself, though I was more interested in my face due to comments such as the name of the series. This series is an exploration of those apps.
