It’s all about the hair! : Masculine formations in Stockholm’s barbershops (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker relationen mellan hår, kön, kropp och rum. Specifikt undersöks hur relationen mellan maskulinitet och hår i form av skägg framträder på tre raksalonger i Stockholm våren 2019. Detta analyseras främst med Sara Ahmeds (2006) begrepp orienteringar och linjer, som beskriver hur vi kroppsligt erfar omvärlden. Judith Butlers (2007) performativa genus är också tolkningsgrundande. Intervjuer med en barberare och kund från var observerad raksalong, har synliggjort informanters strävan efter svåruppnåeliga maskulina ideal, som ett fylligt skägg. Studien berör även nutida historiebruk. Två av tre raksalongers miljö har bidragit till maskulina gestaltningar, orienterade mot nostalgisk känsla av brittisk herrklubb från förra sekelskiftet. Raksalongernas genuina kvalitetsupplevelse, har kontrasterats mot damsalongers sämre service och expertis. Två barberare och kunder eftersträvar dock känslomässig öppenhet, vilket kan sägas ta spjärn från stereotypa maskuliniteter. Detta har möjliggjort omorienteringar mot maskuliniteter med traditionellt sett mer mjuka, feminina värden.

Abstract [en]

This research examines the relation between hair, body and place. Specifically, it investigates how the relation between masculinity and hair such as beard takes shape in three different barbershops in Stockholm spring 2019. This is foremost being analysed with Sara Ahmed's (2006) use of orientations and lines, which describe how we bodily experience our surroundings. Judith Butler's (2007) gender performativity is also at the foundation of the analysis. Interviews with one barber and customer from each observed barbershop, has shed light on informants' strivings to reach elusive masculine ideals, such as a full beard. Two of the three barbershop milieus have contributed to masculine formations, orientated towards nostalgic sense of brittish men's club from the turn of last century. The barbershops' genuine luxury treatments have by some informants been contrastated against lady hair salons' poorer service and expertise. However, two barbers and customers seek emotional openness, which can be said to deviate from stereotypical masculinities. This has enabled reorientations towards masculinities with traditionally more soft, feminine values.
