In February 2016, we wrote about the Fine Art series by Kansas hair colorist Ursula Goff in which she matched the brilliant range of colors from specific paintings onto hair. Since that time Goff has gone on to create absolutely stunning reproductions of famous works of art with the creative use of dye. Such works included are Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, “La Reve” by Picasso, “The Scream” by Edvard Munch, “Starry Night” by Van Gogh and “Color Study” by Kandinsky.

So back in December, while I was in the middle of doing Airacha’s Van Gogh colored hair, I had an idea. I wondered how hard it would be to actually paint Starry Night – the painting – onto some hair. I thought it might be fun to try painting on hair instead of a canvas (for everyone needing a reason why I do anything). So the next day, I started working on painting it onto a hair weft (a thin slice of hair like that used for certain types of extensions) to see if I could work something out. …I spent a lot of time looking through art books and thinking about what sorts of things I like to paint, trying to decide what would be the most fun and interesting to do.
