Funny Portraits of Birds with Luscious Heads of Hair

Coiffure le Bird is an interesting collaboration between photographer Rene Mesman and the creative postproduction specialists at Souverein Weesp that features a series of portraits of birds, each with its own luscious head of hair. Each feathery fowl–a trio consisting of an owl, a crow, and a falcon–boasts a voluminous mane, the kind meant for shampoo and conditioner commercials.

Whether you're a blonde, brunette, or redhead, there's a bird to represent you. The quirky collection allows one to take an objective look at the lengths that people go to look a certain way. The images put the tedious task of adding extensions and getting your hair blow dried and styled into perspective. How would other animals react to our grooming habits if they could talk?
