Some innovative artists use things like feathers as their canvas, while other might paint on small pieces of candy, but for Rob the Original, art starts with hair design.

The San Antonio, Texas master barber creates incredible artwork on his clients' heads in ways that you've probably never seen before. He cuts, shaves and colors hair into celebrity portraits, video game characters and superheroes making them instantly recognizable.

Rob begins by defining the boldest features of each subject and later uses vibrant pigment pencils to enhance the details. He's recently completed portraits of famous World Cup soccer players, Edward Scissorhands and the loveable Yoshi. It seems like there's no limit to his creativity, reproducing whatever his clients have in mind.
