Lionel Messi's barber earns almost 100x more than the average one and here is why!

What Happened?

The Argentine is one of the richest footballers in the world and has been among the top for over a decade according to Forbes. 

This allows the baller to spend money on whatever he pleases and instead of using that cash on typical items like a car or expensive clothes.

Messi reportedly pays his hair stylist a hefty fee. 

Messi pays him an annual salary of $192 000 (R3.3 million). That is a crazy salary of $16 000 (R279 324) per month.

But it is only cutting hair so why the ridiculous fee?

His hairstylist Dani has to follow him every day and travel with Messi to every country, cutting his hair before fixtures and press conferences.

The barber appears to be someone who is incredible at his craft.

Dani does more than just cut Messi’s haircut–he is responsible for his daily hair and beard care routine before events, as well as maintaining his hairstyle on a day-to-day basis.

Did you know?

After his first training session, Ronaldinho recognised the greatness of Messi. Above all, he told his teammates that Messi will become the greatest soccer player. Moreover, Ronaldinho befriended Messi and called him his “little brother.”
