Have you ever been sitting at an NBA game, chowing down on a hot dog, drinking a beer and thought to yourself – ‘I really need a haircut’?

If you have, good news – well – assuming you’re at a Brooklyn Nets game.

According to Nets Daily, the Barclays Center, home to the Brooklyn Nets will be installing a barbershop. Yep -  a fully functional, one-of-a-kind 400 square foot box where you can get yourself cut all sorts of fresh.

We teamed up with Fellow Barber to open the GQ Barbershop, which officially opens for business on Friday, January 10. The 400-square-foot space will be located in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, right on the venue’s main concourse. We’ll be offering haircuts, shaves, and plenty of GQ-approved grooming products during more than 100 sporting events and concerts.

My thing is – when the hell are you going to have time to get a shave/haircut at such an event? I’m hard pressed enough to grab food and get to my seat on time, let alone get a haircut in the process.

Rather interesting idea though.

Oh – and in case you were wondering, a shave and a cut will dent the pockets about $75 bucks. Yeah. $75.
