If you still haven’t donned a Union Flag or red, white and blue face paint, don’t worry, there’s still time to support Team GB. And perhaps you can take inspiration from these amazing hair scultpures and get creative with your follicles?

Catalan street theatre company Osadia have been working their magic at the BT London Live site in Victoria Park, combining hair sculpting skills with performance art.

Models Juliet Cook, Chris Wilkinson and Josie Todd above demonstrate just some of Osadia’s creations, celebrating the Games and London’s famous landmarks including Big Ben and a red telephone box.

Osadia: Whose Hair Dares” is part of Showtime, a free festival of events from the Mayor of London Presents programme, which continues until 9 September.
