Bird/animal inspired hair
« on: 22 Jul 12 / 11:45 AM »
I was at london zoo last week and ever since then I have been completely obsessed by Toucans... The Toucan was by FAR my fav animal of the day, it just looked fab! Then I had a cool idea- what if you had Toucan coloured hair.. white and black at the back with orange and yellow at the front- it would look AWESOME!

I know some of us on here have done peacock hair but has anyone ever done or seen something inspired by other birds- or animals in general? I wanna seeeeee

I'm not sure if I know any bird-inspired styles, but there's obviously leopard print and the zebra-ish stripes that scene kids have (forgot the name, sorry, but I hope you know what I mean lol)
Also, something like tiger hair would be easy to do, I think...and you can see "stereotypical cartoon dinosaur"-y hair in my timeline :')

Ahhh if only black wasn't so nightmare-ish!! Toucans are super pretty, you can get them with bills in a whole heap of colours, some are red and yellow, some are a turquoise fade into yellow with other coloured bits in... etc! So actually they're quite good hair colour inspo :D

Having Phoenix inspired hair has crossed my mind a few times now!

Yellow, red & orange!!
I'd rather be hated for who i am, than loved for who i am not!

I think toucan hair would look really visually spectacular, the bold colours would make a great contrast.....and imagine how flipping great u would look wearing matching shoes ......

I love the leopard spots, but I'd imagine it'd be a) hard to do and b) wash out in an instant D:

Actually, as long as you weren't doing them to yourself and had a brush, I think the spots wouldn't be too hard.

I once was told my hair looked like someone's pet bird, but it was unintentional.

My friend did a rainbow-coloured leopard print on my hair once, she used a cotton bud to apply the dye and it looked great and didn't run at all!

Thats a good idea. the holes in the celery would absorb the dye through capillary action like those old style fountain pens and they would slowly release the dye as you press it on the hair. However, it might not leave an even color but it would be worth a shot.

I had a dark brown all over with semi-hidden streaks of turquoise and my Art teacher insisted in saying I looked like a lovely bird everytime I had a lesson -.- better than my History teacher though...he asked if I had sued the hairdressers, god I hated that man.

I thought it was more to do with the shape of the celery once you've cut in the middle? Then end is curved like a leopard spot

Yeah i know that's what she meant but i was commenting on how it would also be good as it would save time by slowly releasing the dye

If I had an undercut, I'd totally do a giraffe print on it.

Not that this is relevant to the original post in any but the most tangental of ways.

haha totally relevant, i changed the topic title to animals too :P

I did google 'parrot hair' after this thread as youre right, they look amazing!

I also like blue budgies- from this I know that sky blue hair with a black/white zebra undercut would look fab...



Edit- I saw lots of finspiration (geddit) at london aquarium today! Currently hunting for a pick of this amazing pink and orange fish I saw.... GOT IT
