MUNSTER, Ind. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – At one Indiana salon, cutting-edge hairstylists can hold their own against artists.

Active Art and Salon is a unique gallery where visitors can appreciate work created by local artists and get a masterpiece made on their head at the same time.

They offer haircuts and dyes that range from the avant-garde, like intricate updos and coloring, to the a more minimalist trim.

Manager Liz Mares says the resident stylists are truly artists in their own right, just like those who display their work on the walls.

She explains, “What they do is really like sculpture or painting. It’s just a different media. You see how the chemistry they use leads to color and form.”

Though the stylists love creating funky, artsy hairdos, and even have a book of photographs featuring their most amazing work on the human head, Mares assures they are also “capable” of keeping it simple.
