The genius stylist behind the Steve Jobs hair tribute has been found! His name is Johan Ruiz, he's the older brother of the hair model, and he's a stylist outside Philadelphia. He told Runnin' Scared that Jobs's creativity inspired him: "It made my process of becoming a hair artist that much easier." The portrait took him about 15 hours total. And it wasn't his first: In the past, he's also shaved depictions of Questlove and Bob Marley onto people's heads. [Runnin' Scared; Previously]
