Are you a big enough Indians fan to put a player's face on the back of your head? That's what some fans are doing to take Indians-wear to a whole new level.

Orville-area barber, Sonnie Veemara, is the man behind the hottest new haircut in Cleveland.

"I've done more portraits on hair than I have on paper," Veemara said.

Hair portraits. That's what Veemara calls them and his customers and peers agree.

"This is definitely art," Nate Neff said about his Francisco Lindor haircut.

"It's artwork! Really hard to do. I don't think there's anybody else in Ohio that can do it," Cleveland-area barber Christopher Gay said.

Veemara's portrait design haircuts take time- sometimes up to three hours. A basic logo takes about 20 minutes.

"I don't believe in mistakes. You can always fix something," he said.

His Cleveland Indians cuts and designs are blowing up on social media and if you see Veemara in action, you can probably see why.

"I taught myself," he said.

The hair artist did admit, it takes a special type of person to wear a hair portrait proud. Good thing Cleveland sports fans are a very special breed.

"So loyal, they're willing to put it on the back of their heads," Veemara said.
