The haircut that couldn’t wait until after the quarter-final

One year after Nick Kyrgios debuted a creative tennis-inspired coiffure for the Laver Cup, a mid-match haircut from the crowd has drawn eyes away from the on-court action at the quarter-finals of the US Open.

While Kyrgios played against Karen Khachanov for a place in the semi-finals, one spectator couldn’t wait for his barber’s appointment.

In several videos that appeared online on Wednesday, American YouTuber JiDion was shown sitting in the second row of the crowd at the quarter-final match, getting his hair shaved off in the middle of the second set.

“We’ve got a guy getting a haircut a couple of seats away from me,” one commentator said.

The man accompanying JiDion was equipped with an electric clipper.

American great John McEnroe added that it “seem[ed] like a weird time to do that”.

Another commentator joked that they “had no idea that [haircut] service was provided here”.

It’s not the first time that the content creator has decided to get a haircut in an unconventional setting. YouTube videos show JiDion getting his hair cut during a college lecture in October last year and at an NBA game six months ago.

In September 2021, Kyrgios surprised audiences with a special haircut featuring a tennis ball design on the back of his head, complete with a creative moving effect.

DiJion, still wearing his Louis Vuitton cape, was escorted out of Arthur Ashe stadium for disruption to play.
