This is obviously Kim Kardashian.

Here's his take on KIMYE.

And Queen Latifah.

"I was always an artist, and just picked up barbering as a side gig," Ferrel told BuzzFeed Life.

And that's not actually hair dye. It's makeup.

His portraits run the gamut. From Einstein ...

To Nelson Mandela.

And everybody in between.

Check out his tribute to Aaliyah.

And Tupac.

"The hardest part is making sure the client has the right hair," Ferrel said. "The darker the hair, the better."

Here's Gabriel Iglesias posing with a portrait of himself on someone else's head.

Speaking of, here's Rob's portrait of surrealist artist Salvador Dali

Ferrel says that clients need to be patient: portraits can take up to two hours to do.

And no subject is off limits. Well, almost no one ...

Ferrel's portraits run anywhere from $30 to $200, but his fans think it's totally worth it.
