Heads up

Is the scalp becoming the new canvas?

Who says art has to hang on a wall? Nowadays anything can be a canvas.

Cue Janine Ker, an artist-turned-hairstylist and the hair genius behind a whole new rendition of rainbow hair. The southern California creative specializes in candy-colored hair tattoos and carvings. With her rainbow buzz cuts, geometric designs carved into the hair using a razor and a variety of hair dye colors (a true rainbow from pastel to bright-pink), the final look makes it impossible not to notice. It’s a bold statement and a look that is sure to turn heads.

The artist pulls inspiration from 1990s fashion, punk and garage music, and vintage fabrics and patterns. She caught not only the eye of locals, but of celebs like J. Balvin, who sported her work in a music video last summer.The hair-artist’s Instagram feed is dazzling with its incredibly detailed looks and stunning colorful designs. Her profile houses many cool buzz cut color creations, from springy pastel designs to neon shapes and multi-hued floral and organic designs.
