In what used to feel like our only options were between blonde, brunette, or red-head, the world of hair color has not ceased to mesmerize us with sea glass-like hues, shades that resemble the world around us, and even ones that change color right before our eyes. And hair colorist Ursula Goff is one of the ones continuing to push the envelope in the art of hair dye (and yes, we most definitely do mean art).
There doesn't seem to be a trend, pattern, color combination, or placement that fazes the pro-dyer, and one look at her Instagram page will leave you scrolling through hours of proof.
*NOT MY WORK!!!!* Soooo My friend Amber @headcasehair316 doesn't share enough photos of her work and I saw this over her shoulder and yelled at her to get her ass on IG and post it because it's awesome. She said she didn't want to because she didn't want people to accuse her of photoshop and so I told her fuck those people, this shit needs to be SEEN because it's GOOD WORK and GOOD PRODUCT (@zombiesnott Blood Orchid, btw) and GOOD PRESENTATION. I told her I'd prove that it's good by sharing it and now it will get a truckload of well deserved likes and I can also say "I told you so" and that's always a good feeling. So like and then give her a follow and DM her that she needs to post more shit, dammit #neonhair #uvhair #blacklighthair #zombiesnott #pinkhair #behindthechair #beautylaunchpad #americansalon #modernsalon #olaplex #esteticamagazine #glowinghair
Trump hearts...I never even mentioned my political affiliation or opinion and people lost their shit over this. I had multiple requests to take it down or not "make my art political". I simply cannot imagine EVER telling an artist what their art should be about, let alone suggest that art not be political. If you don't like my art, make your own! That's what the first amendment is FOR, fer Jupiter's sake! My expression is just as important and valid as anyone else's, and it is also just as protected. Free speech is for everyone - not just the speech we like or agree with. There's your civics lesson for today. Carry on. #civics #government #billofrights #freeexpression #freedom #arthair #trump #hearts #behindthechair #btconeshot_pastel17 #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #joico #specialeffects #manicpanic #arcticfoxhaircolor
And while she can seemingly do anything when it comes to making hair a colorful masterpiece, apparently she really goes above and beyond when it comes to recreating real life pieces of art on other people's tresses.
Soooooo....Debbie wanted to try a new piece of artwork and decided on a Warhol. Thankfully, I received a metric ton of color today, very generously provided by @changecosmetics, so I had some pretty new colors to play with. The yellow and red are Change Cosmetics brand, the blue is Ion, diluted with Change white and with two drops of Change yellow added, the skin is Change white with a drop of fuschia, and the black outline is @arcticfoxhaircolor in Transylvania. We are pretty happy with it, and it was super fun to do - I FUCKING LOVE MY JOB!!! PS I think as her cowlick grows out it will start to look like David Bowie so that's technically a TWOFER. Check out @atlaspherehair for the original buzzed hair art. #warhol #popart #rainbowhair #neonhair #finearthair #sponsored #changecosmetics #marilyndiptych #behindthechair #modernsalon #americansalon #beautylaunchpad #fckinghair #fiidnt #nothingbutpixies
I entered this in the BTC one shot contest last year, but I'm entering it again because I love it and I'm sort of proud of it and it was hard as hell to get right. Plus, it's super weird and you know I love my weird shit. #behindthechair #btconeshot_vibrant17 #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #expressionism #edvardmunch #thescream #arthair #paintingsonhair
How bout some pop art in your hair? Some people think that Roy Lichtenstein unfairly appropriated and profited from comic book artists, while others say he brought attention to comics as an art form and elevated it. It gets even more meta when you take into account that I am now appropriating it for weird hair projects. Maybe someone could take it a step further for me by doing a sculpture of this? #popart #roylichtenstein #comics #hairart #paintingsonhair #behindthechair #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #btconeshot_vibrant17 #arcticfoxhaircolor #manicpanic #nrage
I wore this Kandinsky hair weft in my hair at the Behind the Chair show last year and @marybehindthechair was petting it while we chatted, lol. I love this painting so much I also just bought a giant rug with this design on it for the lobby of my salon. Painting this was one of my favorite projects this last year, but I'm working on some new ones that are pretty fun, too. Gonna try to get those up in the next few weeks... #behindthechair #btconeshot_vibrant17 #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #kandinsky #wassilykandinsky #abstracthair #synesthesia
Okay, wow. We would struggle to even color in the lines of some of these on paper, let alone recreate them from scratch on someone's noggin. Check out Goff's Instagram account for more of her seriously incredible looks, and in the meantime, we're going to go brush up on our drawing skills.
