Design haircuts are pretty common, but you’ve probably never seen Colonel Sanders on anyone’s head before.
Miguel Rosas of New Style Barbershop in Moline, Illinois faded up a chicken-loving masterpiece and even earned himself free KFC chicken for life. The award-winning barber carved a niche for himself with intriguing designs of people such as Steve Jobs, Kanye West and even Venom from Spiderman, but this KFC product placement design probably paid off the most.
WQAD reported that Rosas and his client/canvas went into a local KFC, and when the employees saw the artwork, they stopped everything they were doing and started taking pictures. Later that day, Rosas got a call from a KFC district manager wanting to see the design in person. After seeing the design, the manager gave the barber a stack of free KFC vouchers and told him to come back for more whenever they ran out.
The KFC manager was really impressed with the design and said he’d try to get it posted on the official KFC website.
Guaranteed, if I’m ever in the area: Sriracha bottle design.
