Dad gets lightning bolt haircut to match son's scars
A Missouri father got a lightning bolt design cut into his hair to match his son's surgery scars.
Jonathan Tynes is really into cool designs. It's what he does it his print shop in Pacific screen printing embroidery, leather patch hats. In fact, a few days ago, he had a design cut into his hair. Ah, lightning bolt. Now you might be saying, Steve, a lot of guys have hip, cool hairstyles or at least they think they dio. But this story is not so much about that he did it, but who he did it for and why that's Hunter, his five year old son. I liked the play at school, and I like to play outside, and I like the players, my toys. Maybe you've noticed the same lightning bolt in his hair. Well, hunters is not there by choice. He was born with a condition that caused the plates in his head to be fused together prematurely. It just really hit me in the gut. It was very heart wrenching that something could honestly be severely wrong with him. At 21 months of age, Hunter had reconstructive skull surgery, so he had to be cut from ear to ear, opened up in a skull, totally reshaped. The zigzag pattern was done, so his hair would cover it up is it grew back, which worked on top, but the scar tissue on the sides didn't cooperate. Something Hunter has been very self conscious about lately. And I said, You lightning boats are really cool. I wish that that I could have that and he goes, Well, why don't you? Why don't you have them? If they're If they're so cool, then why don't you get him? I said, Okay, then I will. So Jonathan went to the barber and got a replica of his son's lightning bolt scars shaved into his hair. The messages that's poured in the people that said how it touched them. It's been It's been really incredible. And how does Hunter feel about his dad's new Dio being my best friend?
