Look At All The Fun Things This Egyptian Photographer Can Stuff In His Hair

Ahmad El-Abi bills himself as a "conceptual photographer." Between wedding gigs and shooting for the TEDxCairo conference, the Egyptian artist also works on his own portraits and projects, and posts many of the results to Instagram. For the decidedly lighthearted series Stuffed Hair, El-Abi decided to take advantage of his curly mop by adorning it with rubber ducks paper boats, spaghetti noodles, match sticks and more. 

"In the last two years I did two photos with my friends adding stuff to their beard/hair," El-Abi told Strombo.com. "I always find that hair is good for creative photos."

Clearly he's onto something.

L.A.-based art director Pierce Thiot's popular Will It Beard project mines the same territory, using his mighty beard instead of his head hair. El-Abi, who came across Will It Beard after he'd started his own series, says the two "have a confluence of ideas."

As for the next object to grace El-Abi's curls? He told Strombo.com he might be up for a few requests. Head over to his Instagram page to keep up with his hair-based exploits.
