A LOCKDOWN loophole is supposedly allowing footballers to secure a haircut throughout the pandemic.

While viewers are sat at home with unusually long mops or questionable house cuts of their own, lots of Premier League stars have actually had the ability to keep their beautiful barnets in tact.

According to the Mail, clubs have found a ruling which permits cosmetics artists and hair stylists to operate on those about to go out on cam.

The loophole was developed to allow TV speakers and designs to be pruned prior to heading onto set.

But, with top-flight video games the subject of wall-to-wall protection while fans remain out of premises, footballers and personnel have actually been able to get it on the act.

It is said that the cuts should not happen inside barber shops, which need to remain closed.

Rather, hairdressers have actually apparently been routine fixtures at training grounds to ensure gamers are in good shape prior to heading out under the floodlights.

Newcastle striker Joelinton was an example of how footballers are not permitted to get a haircut last month, when venturing to the barbers for a trim.

Northumbria Police investigated the lockdown-breaking cut that the Brazilian posted onto Instagram.

Joelinton was fined ₤ 200 for the breach with barber Tom Baxter released a restriction notification by North Tyneside council.

In the United States, Kansas City Chiefs were handed a pre-Super Bowl scare when a variety of gamers chose a hairstyle.

A session was arranged within the NFL side’s camp however the barber’s coronavirus test came back favorable MID-CUT.


Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was among a 20-strong troop of staff and gamers having their hair cut recently, according to ESPN.

The barber was halfway through cutting backup center Daniel Kilgore’s hair when the test returned.

Kilgore was considered to have actually currently been a close contact by that phase and, with both guys using masks throughout, the cut was ended up.
