A Japanese hair salon is rewriting the meaning of cutting edge after taking fashion inspiration from the humble tomato.
The innovative design has emerged from Osaka’s trendy Amemura district and is already spreading across the internet.
Stylist Hiro says the hairdo, called ‘Ripe Tomatoes’ or kanjuku tomato in Japanese, is his masterpiece.
Sections from the crown are then shaped and coloured green to resemble a tomato’s stalk.
Sadly, like the fruit, the style has a shelf life.
The red and the green fades quickly and the ‘leaves’ are difficult to shape after being washed.
Ripe Tomatoes is one of a number of bold designs to emerge from the salon Trick Store.
