Next time a curly-haired client sits in your chair and says, “Surprise me,” show him this textured “Mohawk” and clipper-cut fade combo courtesy of Imani Tezeno (@madeenjapan_), the 2019 winner of the Sport Clips “The Look” competition. Not only is a fade totally on-trend right now in men’s cutting but the subtle Mohawk vibe gives him an edge without taking too much of his natural texture off the top.
Every year, six Sport Clips stylists compete in “The Look” competition while attending the National Huddle to showcase their haircutting skills and creativity. They complete most of the cut Sunday night while the judges look on and then they have 5 minutes on stage the next day to complete their cut while 3,000 attendees cheer.
