Taiwanese stylist creates paintings with clients’ hair trimmings

Hairstylist Allen Chen from Taiwan’s Changhua became an internet celebrity after photos and videos of his unique ‘hair paintings’ went viral, as footage filmed on Wednesday shows.

Using the clients hair trimmings, which Chen calls ‘hair sand,’ he creates incredibly detailed portrayals of The Lion King’, Titanic, A Chinese Odyssey, Venom or Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

According to Chen, the process usually takes between two and six hours.

“Depending on the different size and complexity, the time required for hair sand paintings is different. It takes about two hours to complete a desktop-size sand painting and five to six hours to create a larger painting on the floor,” he explained.
