Step by Step process of the nature of the haircut. From Mullet, to Mowhawk, to the clean cut shave. I wanted to give it a grungy feeling so i used a brick wall as a backdrop. Thanks to my buddy who let me shave his head. I did a pretty good job on the haircut and cleaned it all up, but still had a little bit of fun before we chopped it all off.

Edits done to the photos:
Increased Brightness, increased Fill Light, increased Blacks, lowered the contrast a bit, increased clarity, turned to Black and White.

I like the angles of his body in addition to the stages of his haircuts. If possible, I would have liked to see the bricks line up from one shot to the next.

Looks like he's standing straighter already! Nice expressions. Images are not from the same distance, making him look different heights (even accounting for the hair loss). The crop at the bottom of each pane is not at the same place on him (just below navel, just above pants, below top of pants). Perhaps that is on purpose.

Very cute model! And love the B&W tones. A good progression from hair to no hair!
