She has recently gained a lot of attention on Instagram for creating incredible sculptures out of her hair.

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.

She uses a number of different tools to make her designs a reality, including pins, wool and fabric.

"I'm very happy that lots of people are sharing my art," she said. "It encourages me a lot, but at the same time, I feel a bit of pressure from the expectations for my future work. I really hope I will be up to it!"
