Pictures in Your Hair – level 2

10-05-2022 15:00

After he got a new idea about a year ago, people are noticing a hairdresser in Brazil who shaves and cuts hair on people’s heads to create portraits of famous people.

Holding a picture or a smart phone, he shaves the hair to make an outline of a picture. Then he uses a razorblade to make details and afterwards can add colour.

The hairdresser said that cutting hair this way makes him happy but he is also happy that young people who are interested in his pictures of a famous footballer are now becoming also interested in hairdressing.

Difficult words: portrait (a picture), outline (the basic parts of something), razorblade (a small, thin and very sharp thing for cutting).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Would you get a picture on your head?
