Best Cincinnati hairdos

I keep seeing that commercial for the law firm of Elk and Elk. I don’t know what they specialize in professionally (probably personal injury), but do know they specialize in bad comb-overs and odd haircuts. That is completely¬†obvious.

How can anyone take them seriously? They give a stern stare at the camera… and I want to chuckle.

Who else in Cincinnati has bad hair? Post your nominations in the comments section.

  1. No real nominations, but I thought the same thing about that commercial.

    Sidebar: I keep stumbling over your name thinking that you’re an old co-worker Joe Wassel. Anyway, keep up the good work!

  2. I think sometimes that the one guy was seriously injured by a bad barber! I wonder if he sued? Lol! I always chuckle at that commercial, too, because the gravity of the cases they handle is disrupted by the Shemp-like hairdo. It’s OK to be bald, guys. Really, it is.

  3. I though these two were Cleveland lawyers as I see them on our local TV station as well. For the money they’re making he could afford hair plugs.
