Artist Gives Head-Shaping Helmets a Welcome Upgrade for Babies

Artist Paula Strawn injects her own brand of fun and whimsy as she paints baby helmets designed to reshape a developing baby’s skull. These helmets come standard in plain white and are used to treat a common condition known as flat-head-syndrome or plagiocephaly. Strawn painted the first baby helmet for a friend who told her about the looks she got when she took her baby out in public while wearing the plain, white helmet. Strawn decided to give the helmet a bit of style. Since then, Strawn has painted over 1200 helmets in a variety of styles.
