The Malignant Ginger

I'm Jojogingerhead, a 31 year old artist & musician based in Brighton (UK) satirically documenting the highs and lows of my secondary triple negative breast cancer diagnosis. Trying to see the light in a dark and scary situation without using the words fight, battle, journey or survivor.

Ginger fringe.


Still unable to find a ginger wig anywhere near my hair colour before the shave, I thought I would have a go at making some fake fringes to wear under my headscarf’s. I bought a load of real human hair weft and dyed them in a few different shades of ginger (it took 4 attempts of dying). I then sewed the weft onto elastic creating a sort of ginger sporon like invention then got my friend who is hairdresser to cut them so they hopefully looked less like Worzel Gummidge… And Viola!
