MIAMI – It's 4 p.m. Friday and DeJuan Bonds prepares Patrick Mahomes for the Super Bowl 2020.
Mahomes flew Bonds, owner of Napps' Purple Label Luxury Barber Shop in Overland Park, Canada, to Miami on Fridays at 4 p.m. is the standard time Bonds cuts the hair of its famous client every week.
"I knew he wanted to do that last year too," Bonds told The Post. "He made a promise like," Hey man, you know I have to take you there, I have to have my hair right. "
Just over 48 hours after the biggest game of his life, the biggest game Kansas City has seen in 50 years, Mahomes is as cool as a pickle at the chief's headquarters.
"Same old Patrick," was how Bonds described him.
The Super Bowl can't be here early enough for Mahomes. Mahomes said to Bonds: "I am ready to tackle this game."
The Super Friday challenge for bonds was no easier than for Mahomes against the 49ers.
"It's a Mohawk I've modified," said Bonds.
Mahomes has been wearing Bonds & # 39; Mahomie for three years.
"When he originally came to me it was in much worse shape," said Bonds. "His hair is really difficult because of the cowlicks he has. The hair type is different. "
It will take another 10 minutes for Bond to cut Mahome's hair.
"Because I have to cut it twice, maybe three times," said Bonds. "I have to make sure that I cut it in two or three different ways to make sure that whichever way he combs it is right based on the type of hair he has.
"I've cut a lot of biracial hair, but that's a different head, man."
Bonds is 45 years old and comes from Kansas City. From 1999 to 2009 he was the in-house head hairdresser when he changed the name of his Napps hair salon. It was Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce who referred Mahomes to bonds.
How Much Does Mahomes Charge Bonds?
"Do we have to say that?" Bonds asked.
Bonds will sit in Section 123 at Hard Rock Stadium and watch Mahomes quarterback his hometown team.
"I still don't think we're actually there," said Bonds. "I know I've seen Super Bowl LIV signs everywhere, Chiefs versus Niners, but until I see my team run out on the field, I still feel like I'm dreaming, so it can't be true." We had great teams in the 90s and 2000s and we get so close and we're always disappointed and it's always next year, it's always something. I was depressed year after year and felt hurt. To see these guys run away in the field, it gets surreal. "
He is looking for another hair-raising achievement.
