Obama cut the style at some Mid-South barber shops

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Think of it as a high form of flattery. A growing number of people who voted for Barack Obama are now going to the barber shop for a hair cut that looks like him.

Obama's short cropped style has become the latest way customers are showing their support for the next President.

Some Obama supporters have gone beyond just having a haircut like the President-elect. Some Obama supporters have even had Obama's name and likeness cut into their hair.

Everything from the yes we did cut to styles that features Obama's name in patriotic designs.

A quick search on the internet turned up even more designs. For barbers, it is a chance to show off their skill and their pride at the same time.

"Not only did he win the election, he just made history. Not only in America but around the world," barber Richard Anthony said.

It can take more than an hour to get some of the Obama cuts and barbers said they can hardly keep up with demand.
