Texas barber’s celebrity portraits

Rob Ferrel was working at a barbershop in Texas eight years ago when 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,” Rob says.

Master barber Rob Ferrell designs haircuts based on celebrity’s faces and shaves them into heads of hair at his barbershop in San Antonio, Texas. From Nelson Mandela to Marilyn Monroe, Rob’s incredibly detailed portraits are instantly recognizable.

Using little more than a pair of clippers, a traditional metal razor and some eyeliner pencils, the hair artist — also known as Rob the Original — has recreated a whole host of iconic faces, including Albert Einstein and Audrey Hepburn.
