After Johnny Lawrence makes fun of his scar on his lip and says he should “change the script” and feel safe, he returns to the dojo wearing a mohawk, which is dyed blue, and then gets a tattoo of a hawk on his face. back.
His new look and his karate skills have given Hawk more confidence and confidence. The web portal “Screenrant” has revealed a curious fact that perhaps few know about his new look.
The “Cobra Kai” hair and makeup team takes an hour each day to make the mohawk that Jacob Bertrand wears on the show. Yes, it is a long time for a hairstyle. But it is a necessary element that is part of the character.
Mohawks have been traditionally worn by rockstars, punks, and rebels. When Eli’s character arrives at the dojo with this hairstyle, viewers may notice that he feels more confident.
