“Made the Cut” is a book of illustrations of Butch haircuts.

It is an exploration and appreciation of a feature that is typically dismissed and frowned upon.
I wanted to give attention to a variety of Butch haircuts and isolate them to emphasize their importance as a source of pride, and claim to Butch identity.

By showing the haircuts without the bodies, the viewer is forced to pay attention, recognize, and appreciate a feature that means so much to the Butch identity.

Haircuts serve as a visual first impression and communication tool.
While Butch haircuts can be intimidating in their short, harsh, and sharp appearance, they  provide a form of comfort to other Butches in offering their recognition.
