The Football Man
My brother Jorge and I are crazy about football. I've shaved my brother's head like a soccer ball for the last three FIFA World Cups. The 2014 World Cup in Brazil reached 3.2 billion viewers, so It's fair to say that half of the world saw his face on TV.
After shaving his hear really thin, I use a sharpie to trace the patches and basic lines of the ball. Then, I use a trimmer to clean ups the designated hexagons. The final touches are added by shaving the clean spots with a razor.
Our first attempt to this idea came in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. It was actually really bad. But he came close to fame for like 5 seconds when he made it to the news.
SOUTH AFRICA 2010
The world had its eyes on South Africa 2010, so we knew we couldn't disappoint with another bad haircut. My cousin Francisco and I also joined the cause, and this time, everyone loved our haircut.
Brazil 2014 came and this time we took our wives with us. We lost count on how many times the Ball Head Man made it to the news, everybody wanted a picture with him.
