Iraqi barber makes artworks with customers' hair

An Iraqi barber has been turning heads online, not so much for his cuts, but for what he does with his customers’ trimmings: turning the hair into detailed, ephemeral artworks on the floor of his shop.

Hussein Faleh said that the idea of creating art with clients’ hair came to him one day as he was sweeping the floor.

He told Storyful that he would like to develop his talent “until it becomes his second career.”

Video shows Faleh creating a portrait of Cristiano Ronaldo, an image of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, and different animals, all of which are soon swept away by his broom.
