We’ve seen it all with hair trends recently, from balayage and millennial pink sunset hair to random neon highlights and even holographic hair – however, none have been quite as beautiful as what artist and stylist, Ursula Goff, has managed to create with hair as her medium.

Goff has made a name for herself by painting famous art pieces onto her client’s hair. Paintings such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Claude Monet’s Water Lilies are beautifully transitioned onto hair, and we think they definitely wouldn’t look out of place hanging on the wall of a museum.

“I thought of [creating these looks] while I was washing a client’s hair,” she tells Allure. Goff was no stranger to using hair colour creatively, having previously gained attention from using the colour palettes of famous paintings, and applying these to her client’s hair.

It was from this idea that Goff went on to actually paint these famous works of art directly onto hair extensions. “For [the art] to lay properly on someone’s natural hair, I’d have to basically paint the hair in its natural vertical position, which is not comfortable for me or the client,” says Goff. The extensions are also then able to be taken out and kept as a memento.

Goff’s first project was ‘Starry Night’ by Van Gough, which took her almost 10 hours to complete. She recalls having to re-do the whole thing about three times until she was satisfied with her work.

We think Goff has a real talent for painting and we’re definitely well jel of her clients. Getting our hair done by her is totally going on our bucket list. Aren’t her designs simply breath-taking?

She’s even painted dye directly onto a buzz cut – amazing!

We can’t wait to see what Goff comes up with next!
