This Barber Shaves Portraits Of Celebrities On People’s Hair – And It’s Mesmerizing

We’ve written a lot about unusual, but amazing, hairstyles here at MetDaan. Intricate updos that look like a masterpiece on top of someone’s head, braids woven into perfection, hair colors which look like they should be attached to a mystical creature of the sea. But in most cases, those hairstyles were for women. Men’s hairstyles have been somewhat neglected, not only by us, but by society as a whole. That’s because, due to differences in how men and women are expected to present themselves, women have more options on how they can play around with their hair.

But does that mean men should just go for their usual crew cut and call it a day? Of course not! And one artist from Los Angeles, California is set to prove that. Rob Ferrel, known as Rob The Original on social media, is a barber/artist who uses a variety of ways to express his creativity, including on hair.

“I see myself as a creative artist, and barbering is one of my art mediums,” Ferrel recently told Allure“Through evolving my style and approach, I’ve helped the barber industry transcend to be more about artistry so now there are barbers all around the world doing designs in their work.”

Rob is known for etching intricate designs on his clients’ hair – things like a depiction of Michaelangelo’s “The Last Supper,” (yes, really!), but he also used other mediums like using the dust on cars, wood stain, salt and other things to create pictures.
