Water Wigs
Bald men! By now you already know you're awesome. There be no need to cover up that dome with a strategically placed baseball cap or some variety of merkin. That is... unless your chosen cover is made from water. Then you would have a "water wig", and it would be everything that a virile man - bald or exceptionally hairy - has ever wanted in his life.

The premise behind American photographer Tim Tadder's series isn't exactly rocket surgery: he explodes water bombs onto skulls. It sounds simple enough, yet there's a large degree of tech-wizz needed to achieve this. Crisp studio lighting is crucial, as is a laser and a sound trigger installed to capture that magic moment: when "just the head of hair that fits best with the face" is created.

It does of course help that Tadder's snow domes are endearing subjects. We can't help but feast our eyes on Mr. Mohawk, with his exploding hair and matching earring, or Mr. Mo and his lemon-shaped wig. (And then there's the black dude whose luscious locks make him the spitting image of Marcia Hines.) 

TT's other series are also worth more than a gander, such as his excellent Fish Heads. As well as also using water, this series again displays the Californian artist's fascination with everything glossy, hyperreal, and masculine. This time around, however, men with as much hair on their head as possible are enlisted, with the result again mind-blowing and also vaguely creepy.
