Talented Hairstylist Can Paint Famous Works Of Art Onto Your Hair

"No projectors and NO STENCILS."

We thought hair stencils were cool, but hairstylist Ursula Goff has taken hair designs to a whole new level by recreating famous artworks onto her clients' hair. She can reproduce Pablo Picasso's work on your head using hair dye and a paintbrush. 

Goff got the idea after a project where she dyed clients' hair based on the color palettes of masterpieces from world renowned artists. "I wondered how hard it would be to actually paint Starry Night — the painting — onto some hair," Goff wrote on her blog. "I thought it might be fun to try painting on hair instead of a canvas."  

The idea eventually evolved into a project where she would pick artworks, create a mock-up, and then reproduce the work onto someone's hair using actual hair color. 

"I typically watered them down a little, and then applied them to blonde hair with a paintbrush. I freehand them — no projectors and NO STENCILS. I lay a drawn or painted mock-up underneath to sort of 'trace' it," she wrote. "I've also learned a lot about each artist and their style in the process of doing the paintings, and that has been a cool and unexpected side effect. I feel more appreciative of their work and process now."

You can check out some of her hair paintings below: 


Andy Warhol's "Gold Marilyn Monroe"

Edvard Munch's "The Scream"

Wassily Kandinsky's "Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles"

Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night"

Mark Rothko's "Blue and Gray"

Pablo Picasso's "La Reve"

Roy Lichtenstein inspired pop art

"In this case, I thought I was working on a Lichtenstein, but my research has not yielded whether or not this was actually one of his pieces," Goff wrote. "Regardless, I finished it anyway and liked the outcome."
