She uses materials like fabric, pins, thread, wire, and hair extensions to create these weird and wonderful hairdos.

Laetitia KY is an aspiring fashion designer and self-described “art addict” who has been wowing the internet with her new viral Instagram series showcasing unbelievable hair sculptures. Laetitia (21) from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, uses materials like fabric, pins, thread, wire, and hair extensions to create these weird and funky hairdos. Most of her hairstyles can be done in a few minutes, but a series in which she styled her hair to look like hands took her half a day.

Laetitia told BuzzFeed News she has always loved hairdressing but was inspired by the "beauty and complexity" of a photo series showing the hairstyles of African women from different tribes. For her own designs, she draws inspiration from "everything and nothing at once." She said she never thought her photos would go viral, but she thinks it's amazing that people are losing it. "I want people to see me not just as the girl who just uses her hair, but as a creative and versatile person — because I am," she said.
