A Serbian barber, Mario Hvala, is raking in big bucks etching Lionel Messi images into the heads of die-hard supporters of the Argentine maestro.

Hvala, of Novi Sad, Serbia, shaves the famous face of World Cup-bound Messi into the back of the head of customers who desire the cut.

However, he revealed to AFP that the masterpiece could take up to seven hours to do and costs £150 (app. N72,526).

Hvala said he had also replicated Cristiano Ronaldo’s face on the back of the head of CR7 fans in the past.

It takes five to seven hours. When I made Cristiano Ronaldo’s portrait I got many positive comments and people were amazed,” he said.
