About John ("Mr. T")
From television appearances to "A-Team"-themed bachelor parties, John is the UK's premier "Mr. T" impersonator. And even though he bears a striking resemblance to the real deal, John felt the signature aspect of his look—the mohawk and side hair—lacked a certain "wow" factor. Basically, he was making do with a generic, cut-down clown wig. Then he reached across the pond and gave us a try.
After getting over his initial shock that we even took him seriously, John worked with Lisa, his hair tech, to get the specs just right. Did we do him proud or did he predict pain? We'll let John speak for himself:
"The people working at Hair Direct are artists. I could not ask for a better team to create such an amazing hair system. The fact that you took on the surreal task of creating this hair system and carried it out with utter professionalism, I can't thank you enough for that."
Thank YOU, John! We pity the fool who couldn't get his hair right. ;-)
More About John's Hair Replacement
Sure, John needed a realistic Mr. T hair system. But when he stepped out of the limelight, he also wanted to blend into the woodwork. John says his hair gives him the freedom to completely shave his head and walk around without the need for a bandana or cap.
BTW, if you're in the UK and need a Mr. T impersonator (or if you've always dreamed of being berated by an 80s icon), check out John's website.
