Here Is What It Looks Like When A Haircut Is Also A Piece Of Art. Can Your Barber Do That?

This barber is good, there can be no question about that. His haircuts are certainly like no others. Somehow he manages to cut out portraits of all kinds of celebrities on the backs of his clients’ heads.

The master barber’s name is Rob Ferrell and he does his art at his barbershop in San Antonio, Texas, U.S. From Nelson Mandela to Steve Jobs, Mr. Ferrell’s incredibly detailed portraits are immediately recognizable.

And no, the barber / artist uses nothing special to create his portraits — just a pair of clippers, a traditional razor and some eyeliner pencils. That’s all. Small wonder that Mr. Ferrell is known as “Rob the Original”. His repertoire is incredibly wide, featuring iconic faces as diverse as Albert Einstein, Dr. Dre and Audrey Hepburn.

The barber honed his skills on his 14-year-old brother’s head, starting in 2008. He said:

I started doing designs at the local barber shop, but when other barbers started picking up on my hair designs I wanted to try something different.

I do have to say, though, that Tony Parker’s likeness can use some improving. As a San Antonio man, Rob Ferrell might want to make this a priority. (Scroll down for the video.)
