While watching the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, a performance of Arctic Monkeys caught my eye. And it was because of Alex Turner’s (the singer) hair. He had a rockabilly hairstyle but I wasn’t too fond of the way he wore it. So when I last cut Michael’s hair, I transformed him into a rockabilly guy but drew hair inspiration from Slim Jim Phantom, the drummer for Stray Cats (an American rockabilly band, big in the 1980’s). I guess I have a thing for the curl in the middle of the forehead.
