Lionel Messi Pops Up in Strange Places, Kid Gets Haircut With Soccer Star’s Face (Video)

Anthony Mason, eat your heart out. The former N.Y. Knicks star thought he had the hair design game locked up in the late 1980s. But all things come to an end.

Mason had his barber etch the outline of the New York City skyline in his hair decades ago, and set the standard for all to come.

But one kid recently brought the practice back to life, requesting that the likeness of Lionel Messi appear on his head. He had a barber outline Messi's face and number in his hair, so all his friends now will know who is the greatest soccer player on earth.

These things take a long time, so we have to credit the kid's patience and the barber's steady hand for the work.

See one kid's Messi-themed haircut in the video below.
