Artist Rob the Original is known for his shaved head portraits that showcase famous celebrity faces made from hair. The portraits truly capture the likeness of the celebrity in a way that the consumer can enjoy for several months.

For decades hairdressers have been shaving designs and patterns into people's hair to add an interesting look that will last for several months as the hair begins to grow out. Rob the Original takes this process to the next level by etching portraits of superheroes, athletes, film characters and even monuments into the back of people's hair. The portraits are done using hair blades at various sharpnesses to create intricate shading. Rob the Original even adds color to the portraits so that they look that much more realistic.
