Never mind that consumer choice at a retail level has little to no agency in the fight against climate change. Fact is, fashion is obsessed with the idea of sustainability. The February 2020 issue of Vogue picks up the topic as it relates to hair care — “what to do with one’s hair during the slow-motion collapse of our biosphere?” Enter Eniola Abioro, who illuminates this feature in a portrait by photographer Ethan James Green. Eniola is pictured wearing a Noir Kei Ninomiya dress and a headpiece by Azuma Makoto alongside a caption that reads, “With the average blowout consuming around 1,500 watts of energy, consciously uncoupling from your hot tools is a small gesture with a big impact.” Whether or not skipping a blowout makes any difference, few would argue the value of taking action in an increasingly hotter world or for that matter running a brilliant picture of Eniola in American Vogue.
