MIAMI – Colombian hairdresser Jhonatan Sanchez has literally made an impression on Chicago residents with unique cuts featuring the likenesses of artists, athletes and cartoon images.
Skillfully wielding a razor, Sanchez has managed to “sculpt” any image that a client requests, including the face of Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi, as well as shields, names and messages of love.
Due to hair growth, the third dimension effect does not last more than a week, but the result is “amazing and spectacular,” Daniel Lara told EFE.
Lara asked Sanchez to draw the face of former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan on the back of his head.
Sanchez, who was born in Medellin, Colombia, and moved to Chicago at the age of 3, said he liked drawing from the time he was a child.
When he began cutting men’s hair, Sanchez took time to make designs on the heads of clients, mixing his passion for art with his profession.
Last October, Sanchez opened a barbershop with two friends in Round Lake, a suburb of Chicago.
His creations are in high demand and customers should expect cutting sessions to last up to three hours, Sanchez told EFE.
