Japanese Hair Stylist Creates Unbelievable Artwork On Camel Coat
A curious footage has emerged flaunting the unusual work of one former Japanese hairdresser who found a knack to style coarse hair of camels in magnificent designs using only a pair of tiny scissors.
Meet Megumi Takeichi, 30, a dedicated hairstylist who loves creating designs on camel coats and has traveled the world to give these four legged animals an exquisite look and new style. She has been coming to Bikaner in western India for last five years to take part in competitions in renowned camel fairs and this year even won a second prize in the well-known camel hair art competition. Did you that was a thing?
Megumi is fascinated by camels because she had not seen this animal in her fatherland, Japan, and was drawn to the intricate designs created on their coat.
This talented girl learned these tricks from locals and mastered the artwork within a year. She now takes three weeks to create these marvelous patterns on the camel hair that is a mix of both Japanese and Indian culture.
She jokes and says that she finds it easier and much more fun to cut hair of camels than of humans. This ambitious artist dreams of giving a makeover to all camels across the world.
Apparently, camel hair art is a popular trend in India, Pakistan and Dubai where herders design the coat of their pets every year during camel fairs and Muslim festival of Eid. Wow!
In addition, camel art is more a fun exercise as a prize is announced for the best designer at Bikaner’s camel fair, but in Pakistan and Dubai, herders create the designs during Eid-al-Adha in belief that the impressive designs increase the animals’ value at market and further help them sell the camels for their tender meat. Business is business, right?
