Barbershops and salons are closed across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak. For folks who need a fresh cut every week, there are serious withdrawals, especially those who require the barber to balance out some bald spots. Former NBA star Ray Allen is embracing his inner George Jefferson and asking others, including LeBron James, to do the same.
