MIZRAHI, Mylene. Ambiguous hairs: beauty, purchasing power and “race” in urban Brazil. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.89, pp.31-45. ISSN 0102-6909.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17666/308931-45/2015.

The subjects of the present narrative – women surrounding the family nucleus of a carioca funk artist – are apprehended from their ability in the manipulation of meanings and social representations. Through an ethnography around the issue of constructing and deconstructing beauty in a universe shaped by an urban musical movement and more prevalent within the carioca popular strata, the article sees the appearance as an element which emerges as a potential facilitator for the circulation across the city. From the taste shared by subjects earning incomes sensibly differentiated, the article shows the building of a corporal aesthetics with the potential to increase the mobility across the urban space and to destabilize the historic association which links poverty and color of skin in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : Aesthetics; Consumption; Taste; Materiality; Carioca funk.
