Faces: An Exhibition of Changing Essex Style

At this exhibition discover the changing faces of Essex style. Take a look at photographs of local people’s experiments with fashion, hair and make-up and listen to audio recordings collected at a pop-up beauty salon (see more about ‘Beauty School Drop In’ below).
