We are obsessed with these looks! 😍

TV Land

Laetitia KY is from the Ivory Coast in West Africa, and she's been making elaborate sculptures with her hair for the past four years. (Click right on these pics, they're so cool!)

BuzzFeed spoke to Laetitia, who said she was first inspired to make her hair sculptures after seeing African tribe women in pictures.

She can sculpt virtually anything out of her hair β€” with no help. She uses wire, hair extensions, and sometimes a needle and thread to create her impressive hair art. She said some only take 20 minutes, while others can take up to three hours to do.

Laetitia already has a massive following on both Instagram and TikTok, but her recent video series has caught the attention of even more people. She put her own spin on a viral TikTok trend where users create makeup looks inspired by emojis β€” she decided to re-create emojis using her hair:

Her first video received over 36 million views. In it, she re-created the heart, headphones, squirt gun, and hand emoji:
