About the Headbrow…

Let me explain it. It is a strip of hair on the side of my head. I don’t always wear it, as a matter of fact I don’t have it “on” right now. It has been quite a busy wedding season and despite the presence of Afros and Bellbottoms in many of the wedding photos from the 70’s, the headbrow would probably be a lot harder to explain forty years from now.

But, that is exactly what makes it unique. A barber in Memphis assured me that it made perfect sense to him. In fact, when I told him how I wanted him to cut my hair, another barber, intrigued from the other side of the dressing room, said, “It’s just positive space. You know how a part is usually the negative space between all the hair? Well that thang there is the positive space amongst all the skin.”

I decided I wanted to do something unique and off the wall. Something that would, not only act as my pass or credentials on tour in lieu of wearing that necklace every night, but also something that would give people pause. It is maaaaaaad fun to sit in front of someone with your fedora on for hours and bait them into shock once you reveal.

It’s even better when somebody asks you a question that you don’t know the answer to. *removes hat. Buys time*

Here are some photos of the headbrow captured by photographer Demond Meek backstage at a show in Dallas, TX earlier this summer.
