LeBron James’ Barber Separates Fact From Fiction On The King’s Hairline


One of the most difficult jobs has to be that of LeBron James barber. From headbands to sheer sections, two things are certain when it comes to the king, debate and hairline jokes.

Recently his barber Nick Castemanos, spoke with Yahoo Sports to address a couple of the myths associated with LeBron’s hairline.

There is no dye. No additives. No preservatives. Everyone thinks he’s dying his hair using [temporary hair colorings] Bigen or Black Ice. It’s all his hair. They still don’t believe me. I get Bigen comments all the time. I’ve become numb to it. It used to bother me. It’s not easy to hear that.

From Dwyane Wade to Kobe Bryant, Castemanos is no stranger to cutting the best of the best. But how does LeBron’s cut compare to his other star clients’? Castemanos explains:

LeBron is very tedious about how his hair is cut. The beard is the No. 1 thing. He leaves the top up to me. I leave him less bald. He’s my guy. He’s my hardest haircut. He has good hair. You have to cut it right. He just has a few fat patches around the chin that you have to take your time with. You have to have patience. It usually takes about 50 minutes.

So there you have it. Talk to your barber, maybe he can get your hairline to flourish like LeBron’s once it starts drifting away from your eyebrows.
