Beyond Fine Art: Book Covers for Hair Color Inspiration
Thanks to a Laughing Squid post I became aware of the very talented and awesome Ursula Goff— a hair colorist who sometimes finds color inspiration in famous works of art. Like Vincent van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’– I mean look at those colors!
To blend colors that perfectly you need to be incredibly talented and have an artist’s eye, which it turns out Goff has: I found her explaining in a 2014 Good Morning Kansas interview that she has “a strong painting background.” And it shows!
In case you’re wondering I am the friend who always shouts YES when someone asks “Should I dye my hair (insert any color considered “unnatural”).” Which combined with my love of art, and color, the only thing missing from this story was books. But not for long. I immediately started thinking of book covers that could be great inspiration for hair colorist and anyone looking for a new do.
