Art-school geeks, rejoice! Kansas-based hairstylist Ursula Goff is gorgeously colouring hair to look like famous paintings. Behold these enchanting masterpieces...
There's the post-impressionist, seductive swirls of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night.
The fiery red abstract blooms of Red Canna by Georgia O'Keeffe.
The expressive reds, navy blues and oranges of Edvard Munch's nightmarish The Scream.
Who knew Claude Monet's water lilies would translate so well into blue-green ombre?
A Katy Perry-esque 'do inspired by Roy Lichtenstein's pop art.
Warhol's Marilyn, in highlighter brights.
The Girl with the Pearl Earring is "an excellent study in light and shadow," according to Goff.
Everyone's a masterpiece. They form part of her 'Fine Art Series'.
The swirling colours have an easy effect on the eyes. From more sombre shades, inspired by paintings where the subjects blend seamlessly into the backdrop, to canvas-worthy, kaleidoscopic brights, these wondrous dye jobs are splashed with imagination from root to strand.
Goff is already well known on Instagram, boasting over 50k fans. Last year, she started a movement to expose the realities of social media. The hairstylist decided to share side-by-side, before-and-after shots to show the reality behind those glam Insta-ready pictures.
"We should keep in mind that behind every pretty face or perfect lifestyle is a regular person," she says. Hear, hear.
