Water Wigs: Split-Second Wigs Made For Bald Men With Exploding Water Balloons

This is a series titled 'Water Wigs' by photographer Tim Tadder and his cohorts. It features bald men with wigs made from water as a result of thrown water balloons popping on their heads. Neat, but I still want mine made out of chocolate milk.

We just finished shooting a new project we call Water Wigs. The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. We found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of of water hair! We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.

I actually got this tip several times and every time I read the headline as 'Water Wings' and was all, damn, Geekologie tipsters are being f***ing spazzy today -- water wings have been around foreeeeever. I used to splash around in the pool with those things on in like, 2010.

Hit the jump for several more worthwhile examples.

Thanks to Steve, allison, KTG, Marbles and Tony B, who have all worn wigs made out of spaghetti before and insist they've never felt sexier. I believe it.
