A black-and-white photograph of Big Daddy Kane getting his hair trimmed. Kane is sitting in the foreground with a cape draped over his shoulders. His head is tilted to his left as the barber uses electric clippers to shape Kane's box top hair style. The barber is shirtless and also sports a box top, with cuts at his right temple. There is an inscription on the back with the subject, photographer, and date written by Bill Adler.
