Ursula Goff, a hairstylist from USA, gets her inspiration from classical masterpieces. Her color scheme roughly approximates the hues in Van Gogh’s Starry Night or Edward Munch’s The Scream.
According to Ursula, she’s been doing art since she was 5. Asked about her ways of hair dying, she explains that she tends to “color hair much the same way I color a canvas, using the same sorts of color application techniques and identical color theory.”
For the past year, people have turned to their own hair as a canvas for their artistic interpretations of the world around them, finding a range of inspiration from baked goods to childhood tales of mythical creatures to the entire universe. Hairstylist Ursula Goff has certainly experimented with each of these trends, but now the creative colorist has embarked on a series that draws inspiration from art history. Goff channels the work of late greats—think van Gogh, Monet, and Warhol—for her Fine Art Series.
“I suppose I am known primarily for being a hair colorist, which is my main occupation, so you will see a lot of that here. But I also have a degree in psychology, and I have a lot of random interests – some of them creative, some of them academic, and some of them are just miscellaneous. So I will most likely be plopping a little bit of all of the above round these parts. I like science, social issues, politics, all different kinds of psychology (particularly behavioral economics and community psychology), other cultures and languages, food, homeschooling and unschooling and other aspects of education, art, music, and…lots of other stuff. I don’t know that this will be a terribly focused blog, but I’m not a terribly focused person, and besides, I’m a grown up and I can do my blog however I want.”
