My daughter used to be a competitive dancer, and I remember those weekends we’d spend, just before competition season started, stoning the dance costumes with Swarovski crystal flatback stones. We used a strong bonding material to ensure that those $30 – $50 of Swarovski crystal stones would stay on the costumes until the conclusion of Dance Nationals.
Apparently, there are more uses for those Swarovski flatback stones than clothing, accessories, and dance costumes. Philip Levine uses them on his head! At the age of 29, he’s now a ‘head artist’. In the picture, he can be seen with his bald head covered in 1,000 Swarovski crystal stones.
The stones appear to be Crystal CAL, perhaps 30mm in size. It would be interesting to see him add designs and pictures integrating some of the other Swarovski crystal flatback stones using different colors and sizes of the crystal giant’s offerings.
The web site AmazingOnly.com shows some of the other creations that Philip Levine has worn. One source indicated that most head designs only last a day or two, so some of these designs would be quite expensive. Another source indicated that this head artist has a dream to some day open a salon for ‘head styles’ rather than ‘hair styles’.
It is wonderful to see Philip Levine embrace his baldness in such a unique way.
