Hair styling is certainly a creative endeavor, but San Antonio-based barber Rob Ferrel, owner of Rob the Original Barbershop, has elevated it to an art form. Using the cranium as a canvas, and hair as the medium, Ferrel uses standard barber clippers and razors (and colored eyeliner for the finishing touches) to produce incredible portraits and other designs onto eager patrons’ heads. While working at a barbershop in Texas eight years ago, Ferrel recalls, local kids starting bringing in requests for hair art. “At first it was simple patterns and designs, but now if they bring me any image, I can replicate it in their hair,” Ferrel says. And, based on what we see here, we have no doubt that Ferrel can deliver. His work is amazing.
