She may not tease or hairspray, but there's no doubt that Kerry Howley is a skilled hair stylist.

UK-based art student Kerry Howley is 23 years old and has made a name for herself with her hairy creations. Howley wanted to explore people's attachment to their hair, and decided to create collars made entirely out of it. She used cut hair from a family friend and spent an astonishing 60 hours on each delicate piece. Using small blades, she weaved the hairs into intricate shapes and patterns.

The magnificent mane-wear is highly detailed and divine. The pieces almost resemble henna tattoos with their thin lined patterns. Kerry Howley is a hairdressing diva.
