The inspiration for the look of the character Adonis Creed in Creed II was inspired by the haircut I gave #MichealBJordan for the @Essence magazine cover. The look Mike wanted for Adonis was for him to look bigger & better. Therefore @mrcalliet worked on his body and I was responsible for hair. Adonis fits the profile of most men from Philadelphia, someone with a weekly haircut appointment. Therefore he is sharp throughout this movie because the character all’s for it. #creed2 #nov21st
Creating a character is totally different than just doing a haircut. This was the lesson that I learned from two of my mentors @therealpierceaustin & @staceykutzlive. They informed me that each character has to have hair that fits his role. Their insight helped me follow the lead of #RyanCoogler in developing the look for Adonis Creed in the first extension of the Rocky series of movies. Adonis wasn’t rich, nor was he connected to his family finances. He could not look like he was living in the barbershop at all therefore he had to be clean because he worked but natural as if he might be cutting his own hair. This was a hard task for me. How do you give someone a fresh week old look every two days. I’m excited to say that on Nov 21st you all will introduced to an evolved Adonis Creed in #Creed2
