Andis® Master Barber Kenny Duncan Keeps "Creed" Actors Groomed


Sturtevant, WI (November 2014) – Working on the movie set of the new boxing action-drama Creed, Kenny Duncan, Andis lead educator, relied on his Andis tools to get the actors camera ready.

 

“As part of the hair crew on Creed, I clipped and trimmed the principle actors Michael B. Jordan, Tony Bellow and Sean Davis. For Michael’s role of Adonis Creed Johnson, director Ryan Coogler envisioned a medium fade, which I started with the BGR+ with outliner blade to his temples below the occipital. To transition to the top, I used the Envy clipper closed, half open and fully open, followed by the 1A blade on the BGR+ against the grain. He requested the T-Outliner for edging,” says Kenny.

 

“I was referred to hair department head Rita Parillo. I am fortunate that my years of professionalism have presented me with amazing opportunities, including being Michael’s personal barber on the promotional movie tour,” he adds.

 

Just as Creed looks to introduce the Rocky franchise to a new generation of viewers, Kenny looks to educate a new generation of barbers and stylists about Andis clippers and trimmers.
