I always love seeing unique ways to make art. Rob Ferrel, a.k.a. Rob the Original, creates unique nerdy hair art. Yep, you read that right. He makes nerdy hair art. He has some serious skills and can cut amazing portraits of well-known characters into hair. I’ve seen some pretty interesting hair art that features sculpture or tons of hairspray, but this is something new to me. Rob has done pop culture characters and symbols like Edward Scissorhands, Breaking Bad, the game of Tetris, Spider-Man and more. If you’re going to get a haircut you might as well have some fun with it!
Check out this video of the Spider-Man hair art being created:
Here’s a short documentary about Rob and his work crafting the master hair art:
Rob even has some step-by-step tutorials like this one about how to create stars:
Creating nerdy hair art like this definitely takes a lot of skill and precision. He does such a good job of getting the details right. Who knew that making art with hair would be such an interesting medium? Forget the typical paint and canvas! Hair art is impressive. Take a look at Rob’s website, Facebook and youtube channel for even more awesome hair art.
