Barber creates celebrity portraits on his clients’ heads

Master barber, Rob Ferrell designs haircuts based on celebrity’s faces and shave them into heads of hair at his barbershop in San Antonio, Texas, US. 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, The Telegraph reports.
The former carpenter discovered his talent after using his 14-year-old brother as guinea pig for his first portrait 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. “That’s when I decided to try out portraits. I did great on my first try and everyone who saw my first portrait was truly amazed.” Rob became a celebrity in his own right when his portrait of basketball player Tony Parker went viral in 2012. Since then, people have been flocking to his barbershop from all over the country requesting custom designs. He added: “My clients always are very supportive. They always complement me when I do portraits, they brag to their friends about me being their barber.”
