The Hair Color Trend That's Bringing Museum Art to Life

Starry night strands, please.

A few of the world's most seminal artworks have an entirely new canvas. 

Kansas-based hairstylist Ursula Goff is bringing paintings like Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night" and Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" to life with elaborate and ultra-vivid dye jobs. The results are dramatic—not unlike many of the crazy hair color trends of 2015, such as sand art hair and galaxy hair—but when you compare them side by side with the originals, the artistry is pretty astounding and no doubt the result of many hours of labor.

A painter since the age of 5, art has always informed Goff's color application. 

"I tend to color hair much the same way I color a canvas, using the same sorts of color-application techniques and identical color theory," she explained in one of her Instagram posts.

Now I'm no art history major, but I've got to commend Goff on some serious skill—the sunset highlights in Edvard Munch's "The Scream" are not to be missed.
