Artists all over the world are using various ways to express their artistic views. This is why contemporary art is fascinating us every day, be it expressed in paintings, fashion, DIY projects, or hairstyles.

Take Laetitia KY, a young fashion designer from the Ivory Coast who is sculpting her hair in different shapes, in a one-of-a-kind form. From bunny ears to human hands and even everyday objects, KY creates some of the most intricate shapes with her hair. According to BoredPanda KY was inspired for her impressive hairstyles from the hair of women in African tribes.

In an interview for Metro she said:

‘What I really am hoping for from this project is to incite people around me to be themselves, and not to be afraid to express themselves. We shouldn’t let the fear of negative feedback stopping our creativity because there isn’t anything as nurturing as being oneself.
