Sweet Style: Surreal photography series explores the similarity between hairstyles and confectionary

Ever since Doody compared Frenchie to a "beautiful, blonde pineapple" in Grease, the comparisons between food and hair have been drawn. Madrid-based photographer, Paloma Rincón, has created this fun photo series entitled Sweet Style, to celebrate this very topic.

She explains: "When I was a little girl I used to play with my hair and often created sophisticated hairstyles for myself. Now, as a woman with long hair, it has become a texture I am very close to. In many projects, I have used hair as a material that adds an organic feel to my compositions.

"Lately I have noticed a big connection between the colours and shapes used in hairstyles and those found in bakeries and ice cream. In this self-initiated series, I explored the similarities of these aesthetics by unifying them in lighthearted images. The idea of playing imaginary children's games with food brings life and a bit of whimsy to these playful combinations of props, textures and colours." Discover more at palomarincon.com.
