Ursula Goff's work draws inspiration from her favourite paintings.

Hairdressing is a creative trade, and stylists get their ideas from all over the place. 

For one Kansas, United States hairdresser, inspiration comes from art history. 

Ursula Goff bases her bright, fluid colour work on famous paintings, from Andy Warhol's portraits of Marilyn Monroe to Gustav Klimt's The Kiss.

There's even a purple, blue and orange number based on Edvard Munch's The Scream.

She's clearly passionate about art history, writing at length in her Instagram captions about what she loves most about each painting.

For Georgia O'Keefe's Red Canna Lily, that's the conflict between O'Keefe's assertion that she just painted flowers, and feminist interpretations of her work.

"Do we have to accept outside interpretations for art, even if the artist disagrees with them? Is it fair to tell an artist what they may be "subconsciously" conveying?" Goff writes. 

We think it's extremely cool that she's not just drawing on the play of light and colour in these works - Goff brings a wider knowledge to her work.

What an artist.
