World Cup 2014: Hair Artistry

2 Jul

Of the good kind for a change! What you are viewing above is the spectacular work of Rob The Original, a master Barber from San Antonio, Texas. In the past week or so he has produced some wicked World Cup-related haircuts for fans. And he does all this freehand too. Just give him a photo, a head, and his tools and he’s good to go.

I first came across his work when he completed a Guillermo Ochoa cut last week. Just look at the detail he has in there for Memo’s gorgeous curls. Incredible.

Here are a couple more:

I am so curious who is going to show up next in his portfolio. My money is on Neymar, as shudder-inducing as this thought is. You can follow Rob’s work on Twitter and Instagram.

Also getting in on this (possible?) trend is England fan Kai Ward. He had Steven Gerrard’s face shaved into his hair after England lost to Italy in their first match.
Umm, well, actually this one is a bit creepy. Still though it is a way better idea than tattooing a coach’s face on your body. That is just pure, 100% crazy-ass behaviour.
