Ivorian Artist Sculpts Her Hair Into Hand Gestures In Stunning Photo Series

Côte d'Ivoire-based artist, Laetitia KY shows the versatility and durability of black hair as she expresses her identity through her hair in a new photo series.

We see her locks twisted into an additional pair of hands. The hair-hands are braiding her hair in one photo, holding a flower to her nose in another and making various impressive gestures in the others.

The impressive and zany series unsurprisingly went viral after she posted it to her Facebook on Monday – getting love everywhere from Tumblr to Twitter.

On her Facebook post, she said:

"My hair in the shape of hands is the expression of my thought, which is so strong that it decides to materialize before I even go through with the action."

Check out the bright photo series below, and keep up with Laetitia's hair art through her Instagram and her Facebook page.
