Steve Jobs Tribute Haircut At Fifth Avenue iPhone Launch







This young man, in line for the iPhone 4S at Apple's Fifth Avenue flagship store, has a unique tribute haircut to Steve Jobs. On one side, Jonathan Mak's Steve Jobs tribute logo, and Albert Watson's famous photo of Steve Jobs from Fortune in 2006. On the other, he has Apple's famous "Think Different" slogan emblazoned.

No word on who actually did the impressive cut. The photos were snapped by navigation app maker CoPilot.

Thanks to MacRumors forum member kfury77 for the tip

Update: The artist who did the work was TheJohanRuiz

Ridiculous, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't impressed.

Better than a tattoo... his hair will grow so he can have his next tribute sculpted into his hair.

girls (today) that i know and have dated (and/or admired) LOVE to play with haircuts, hair and the lack thereof...they actually just love to play, to be honest, but in a good way...not sure i could or would go that far to get a bit more attention, and with my luck the hair person might sink the whole idea with a few poorly composed clips and snips...but that stylist... rocks.

You guys must be really easy to impress. It looks more like a misshapen Gandhi than Jobs.

Probably Jobs' boyfriend. Very sad if you ask me.

Dumb Awesome

Pretty stupid, but seriously good work. It's one of those things you try to criticize but admire on the inside. Pretty cool. Stupid. No cool. Aww damn...it's at least unique. I like the way they did the multiple views.

Would have never guessed this were possible on hair. A very nice tribute to be sure.
