“A team full of flat tops…”

After reading a Twitter conversation between Nerlens Noel and Alex Poythress today about barber shops in Lexington, I had a beautiful thought.: What would a team full of flat tops look like? Pretty darn awesome, if you ask me. (There is no current team pic, so enjoy the flat tops on our old friends as well. I think it really balances out Davis’ brow.)

    Looks like the second Gillispie team. There were literally 17 players on the poster.

    Ashland Barber Shop (4 chairs, much wait) is still the best shop I’ve ever encountered in all my travels. That old man cuts hair as good as anybody, and remembered me after a 6 year absence (I’ve not been in the 6 years since, so I don’t know if it’s still open). I miss little things like that about Lexington.

    If it’s still open, make sure you go to the old man or his wife. Flat tops would be okay if done by the ‘son,’ but by no means should you go to ‘son-in-law.’ You’ve been warned.

    I hope Brian Long can appreciate the majestic flat top that has been so gracefully photoshopped on his head.

    Anthony Davis looks legit. More natural than Noel. Maybe it’s the brow. Maybe it’s just because its AD too..

    #8- I moved from Lex a couple of years ago, but agree about Ashland Barber Shop. However, I don’t remember an “old man.” There was an old lady and three guys probably in their 30s-40s. Anyway, it’s still open. I didn’t discover it until living in Lex for a couple of years but never went anywhere else after I found it. Haven’t found any barbers that good since I left.
