Established in 2014, DKUK is the original hair salon that got rid of mirrors, offering haircuts and colour in front of art. This unique environment creates an experience like no other, which is here for everyone. You can come in for a haircut, or just to see the exhibition. Open to all hair types and lengths, we charge gender neutral pricing based on time and stylists’ experience.
DKUK is a platform for making contemporary art and the discussion around it more commonplace and accessible. Staging exhibitions and events in the welcoming setting of a bustling hair salon, DKUK presents itself as a new model for creative practices and artistic economies to support each other. This includes commissioning new art works and providing full training for artists to become hairdressers. The co-existence of hairdressing and art means at DKUK we look after peoples’ heads – inside and out.
