Typically male hair cuts are very boring.
But Barber Rob Ferrell takes barbing to a whole new level, drawing the attention of the international community to his amazingly creative, hair-raising images of celebrity portraits shaved into the backs of people's heads.
From Nelson Mandela to Marilyn Monroe Rob's incredibly detailed portraits are instantly recognisable.


The US barber based in San Antonio, Texas, uses just a pair of clippers, a traditional metal razor and some eyeliner pencils to create the iconic faces.
The hair artists known as "Rob the Original" is a former carpenter who 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. 
And since then, people have been flocking to his barber shop from all over the country requesting custom designs. 
From rapper Tupac Shakur, actor Johnny Depp, to President Barrack Obama, Rob's designs are proving to be a cut above the rest with fans. 
And during the World Cup his popularity soared again with clients requesting football and player themed images. 
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. 
"I'm proud of all my hair art, I love to show people the 3D portraits I'd done of Bob Marley and Tommy Chong, because the reaction is amazing." 
No doubt Rob's haircut are unbelievably realistic and his talent undeniable. But it takes a very adventurous person to pull of carrying about portrait shaped haircuts. Guys given the chance, will you rock one of Rob's haircuts?
