12 I M A N I FA L L 2 0 1 7 ARMANDO SANCHEZ Inside The Cover Boy Meets World Sport Clips taps its team members in search of the most stylish little man. By Stephanie Yaggy Lavery W hat better way to showcase this multigenerational issue than to feature a young man on the cover? So, we turned to Sport Clips, the male-targeted haircare franchise with more than 1,600 locations in the U.S. and Canada, to help us fi nd the cutest kid. The company tapped its pool of team members' kids, aged 7 to 12 years old; parents sent in pictures of their stylish little dudes hoping for the opportunity to grace the cover of MAN. Submissions were narrowed down to 16 fi nalists, and a panel of Sport Clips artistic team members and our staff selected the winner: Mason Smith. Seven-year-old Mason (and his mother Crystal) was treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles where he spent the day at our studios for the cover shoot—and then a much-deserved day at Universal Studios Hollywood. From getting his hair styled to trying on wardrobe options, Mason sat through the hurry-up-and-wait process of a photo shoot with ease. A natural in front of the camera, he nailed every shot with a maturity beyond his years—proving to be an excellent representation of the future MAN. Art director Michael Block and editorial director Stephanie Lavery select wardrobe options for our little cover man. Andrea Allemand, Sport Clips artistic team member, creates a winning hairstyle.
