The Barclays Center is very GQ these days. The Condé Nast publication partnered with Sam Buffa's Fellow Barber to debut the GQ Barbershop on Friday, which finally solves the nagging problem of where to get a fade during a Nets game. "We'll be offering haircuts, shaves, and plenty of GQ-approved grooming products during more than 100 sporting events and concerts," the magazine explains.
The 400-square foot shop is located inside the main concourse, and a cleanup starts at just $10. One thing you can bank on is your boyfriend'll have something to do if Brooklyn's winning prospects take a nosedive during the second quarter. Jay Z sightings, however, are not guaranteed.
