Tri-Cities barber going to Super Bowl to cut players’ hair

KENNEWICK (AP) — An Eastern Washington barber says he’s going to New Jersey this week to cut Seattle Seahawks players’ hair before the Super Bowl.

Kennewick barber Mark Baysinger tells the Tri-City Herald it’s a dream to cut several players’ hair before they take the field against the Denver Broncos.

Baysinger gave Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner an impromptu haircut last summer in the Tri-Cities. He later forged a friendship with players such as safety Earl Thomas. He later got requests to cut other players’ hair for interviews and commercials.

Baysinger often drives three hours from his Kennewick barbershop to the Seattle area to cut players’ hair.

The 30-year-old is a longtime Seahawks fan and considers it the peak in his career to be cutting hair at the Super Bowl.
