One creative man is skilled when it comes to the art of trimming and cutting hair – so much so, that he even creates works of art on his clients’ heads Vein Unity, as he refers to himself, is a South African Barber from the Eastern Cape who can do a portrait of any person on your head as a hairstyle. Images of some of the young man’s work have taken Mzansi netizens by storm, as they show his attention to detail in trimming out cartoon characters, waves, different shapes and dimensions as well as the faces of famous celebrities on his clients’ heads.
Vein Unity whose real name is Lonwabo Takata (25) can draw, paint, sculpt and shave hair so he merged his talents together to create something unique – 3D hairstyles. “My first few haircuts were of US rapper Tupac, then Nelson Mandela and Barak Obama. People loved the work, and I did Cassper Nyovest, Black Coffee, many others, and recently Riky Rick when he passed,” he told Drum magazine earlier in the year.
