LeBron James’ Barber Says He Does Not Use Dye On His Hairline

The power’s in his hair, ninja…

Barber Nick Castemanos has grown tired of getting asked over and over again about the hairline of his most famous client, LeBron James.

“There is no dye. No additives. No preservatives,” Castemanos told Yahoo Sports in a phone interview Thursday. “Everyone thinks he’s dying his hair using [temporary hair colorings] Bigen or Black Ice. It’s all his hair. They still don’t believe me. I get Bigen comments all the time.

“I’ve become numb to it. It used to bother me. It’s not easy to hear that.”

Nick takes LeBron’s hair REALLY seriously.

James’ four-year tenure with the Heat began when he signed as a free agent in 2010 after departing from the Cavaliers amidst chaos. In October of 2010, Wade set up James with Castemanos for a haircut. Castemanos quickly hit it off with James and has been cutting his hair all over the United States ever since.

“I was a little star struck at first,” Castemanos said. “But LeBron was very cool and welcoming. And this was after going through a lot of scrutiny for coming to Miami.”

Of all his customers, Castemanos says James is the most challenging and meticulous with his hair and beard. A typical haircut for the NBA’s most heralded player takes nearly an hour.

“LeBron is very tedious about how his hair is cut,” said Castemanos, who has been a professional barber for 11 years. “The beard is the No. 1 thing. He leaves the top up to me. I leave him less bald. He’s my guy.

“He’s my hardest haircut. He has good hair. You have to cut it right. He just has a few fat patches around the chin that you have to take your time with. You have to have patience. It usually takes about 50 minutes.”

Since August of 2014 Nick has been LeBron’s full-time barber, moving to Cleveland to cut the team before games. So anytime you have marveled at how “The King’s” hairline looks…there, you can credit Nick.

Oh, yeah…

So what is James paying Castemanos?

“It’s a private arrangement,” Castemanos said. “It’s not as crazy as everyone thinks, but it’s cool. It’s a real good arrangement.”

Must be nice. He better be sure-handed, Lord know LeBron can’t afford a mistake.

You buyin’ Nick’s story that there is ZERO dye being put in Bron’s wig?
