Human Hair Embroidery Is Almost as Cool as It Is Gross

Zaira Pulido is a Colombian artist who is into embroidery. That’s not all though. No, that would be far too simple; she’s into embroidery and she uses human hair. Of course, using something as personal as hair means that the embroidered portraits have a certain amount of uniqueness and personality to them. As such, one of the things she’s taken to doing is creating portraits of her friends, using their own hair.

Now, I’m not too big into hair, but I will admit that these are sort of cool. A close up look at any of these portraits gets a little more unsettling, but it’s just hair and it was obtained with consent, I can only assume and hope. I certainly wouldn’t want to work with massive amounts of hair like that, but to each their own.

You can catch more of Zaira’s work on her Flickr page or her profile at Behance.
