Originally from Los Angeles, Rob Ferrel (shown above with his ‘Frida” cut) moved to San Antonio with hopes of becoming an artist. Little did he know that he’d wind up becoming the “Hair Artist.” With his background in drawing, combined with his professional barber skills, Rob the Original has turned scalps into canvases.
