Those of you who have visited our blog before probably know that we have a weakness for creative photo ideas. In recent years, Instagram in particular has proved to be an almost indefatigable source of finds. To be honest, this is also the reason why we have become such fans of the platform. Our latest find on Instagram didn’t catch our eye because of photo technique or exciting image compositions, but because with a funny and quite creative idea she managed to make her hair her main source of Instagram success and a tool for socio-political statements.
Wool, wire, threads, a few accessories from time to time and of course an incredible amount of creativity are all that the artist needs. Laetitia Kys feed is really incredible. A teapot, a dog that gives her the paw, a dancing couple on her head… the list of ideas she realizes with her hair is almost endless.

At what level is the fight for women rights in your country ????? in mine we still have a lot of work. some women are sexually mutilated because some believe that a woman does not have the right to have sexual fulfillment. some women dont have the chance to go to school because for some it is not useful to educate a woman. ordinary sexism is second nature to some. women are paid less, sexually harassed daily, slutshamed and violence against them is justified… guys the list of women struggle here is so long…. In other contries this is even worse… Today, Is a reminder of how we have a lot of work again to do. Im sad sometime when i realise how powerless i am in front of the situation of some women in this word. But i remember that i have a powerful weapon ! ""The possibility to speak"" Think to all these women who speak everyday to say NO when Something wrong, things become a little better everyday. So dont neglect it and never lose an opportunity to speak. Thank you to all theses brave feminists men who stand with women everyday for justice and equality. You are heros too.
For Laetitia, her hair is above all a means of self-expression, she shows her followers and the world what she is busy with, what she is enthusiastic about and, above all, Laetitia Kys addresses topics that are not funny and entertaining at all. She uses her Instagram reach and the attention she gets for her hair creations to draw attention to issues such as social injustice and sexual harassment or to advocate women’s rights.
A really great woman and artist.
