Juwan Howard was a member of the famed 1991-92 University of Michigan Fab Five. He’s an NBA champion, all-star, and currently serves as assistant coach with the Miami Heat.
He briefly returned to the headlines recently when a Memphis newspaper misprinted his photo as David Fizdale, the head coach new hire for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Not only was Howard instrumental in ushering in a new generation of basketball fashion, popularizing cutoff t-shirts underneath jerseys and black shoes with ankle-socks, he is well known for his consistent haircuts which boasted the ever coveted defined waves.
To quote Pomona, CA Emcee Suga Free, Howard’s waves are deeper than Redondo Beach.
His edge-ups were so crispy they looked painted on. Young men across the country were inspired to scurry about for the right product/brush combination that would too, make their hair steadily dip.
In this 2010 exclusive interview with the California Crusader newspaper, Juwan Howard makes a startling revelation about his celebrated hair waves.
