Hair Colorant Poster Illusion


Pat Toner found this interesting outdoor execution, and thought it would be a great addition to our billboards section! Look at the first photo below. At first everything appears normal, but if you scroll down and see the rest of the gallery, you’ll quickly realize how smart their idea really was! The company behind this produces some hair colorants, and I couldn’t think of a better way to identify natural colors, than with the nature itself! I’m always supporter of great ideas, specially those involving optical illusions! Sadly, I’m never compensated for mentioning these kind of ads, even though many of you brought this up in the comments section. Btw, other were also interested how to submit illusions – I thought the Contact link in the footer was visible enough, but you are always welcome to use our Facebook group if it feels easier…

  • Luver.of.Pie

    Wow. Very imaginative. I would love to meet the person who designed that billboard!

  • I had to look at this post today because I thought that maybe it would be an advertisement from a product line my company uses, and sure enough it is! I wonder where this billboard was…

    I must say I never did see a “contact link” at the bottom of any footer. I have seen the “speak your mind” link, but one has to go into the posting proper, rather than on the page with the ‘short’ version…. Admittedly, I am relatively new to the site, but making available to everyone (even sorry folk like me) will get you many more comments. Just like recycling, it has to be easy (and even then, not everyone will participate)….

    thats so cool!

  • Ian MacDonald

    It gives the illusion that a gust of wind would snap that forehead piece off. Must be reinforced.

  • @Ian

    its not a cutout, but a transparent material for the hair. So it will be as sturdy as any other billboard.

  • Emma

    Wonderful concept!

  • Latisha

    the most perfect ilusion I’ve evr seen ;D

  • Chloe

    Wow. At first, I couldn’t figure out what was different with the picture even after scrolling down to see the other pictures.

    Anyway, this illusion is pretty neat when you figure out when the creators have done.

  • peraltr

    the coolest thing is that it also tints your eyes, nostrils and mouth!!! whoaaaa!

  • M

    The same hair stuff is also used for mouth, eyes, nose…


  • Marcus

    It does not have to be some kind of paper. Could be solid steel or anything like that too.
    Or just cut-out paper between two plexiglass pieces…

  • kidsrock12347
