In Alexandru Giurgiu's salon in Geretsried, the stars of FC Bayern give each other a hand.
Other top footballers are also customers there.
Munich - Alphonso Davies has left the corona quarantine.
Lucas Hernández is scheduled to follow on Friday (January 14th).
One of her first paths in freedom will probably lead her to him: Alexandru Giurgiu.
The 31-year-old is a hairdresser in Geretsried.
And the Bayern stars are regular customers in his store "Alex The Barber Men's Salon".
“They can actually be dressed up before every game, but every ten days at the latest,” Giurgiu tells our newspaper.
“Short pages and beautiful lines are important to them.” The Romanian-born has been cutting hair since he was 15: “It's my passion.” In spring 2016, Giurgiu came to Munich, initially working as a parcel delivery service.
In 2019 he opened his own barber shop.
Hairdresser from Geretsried cuts Bayern stars' hair - and shot an Instagram video with Davies
His first Bayern customer: Oliver Batista-Meier (now with Dynamo Dresden), who wrote to him on Instagram in May 2020 and thus set an appointment.
Little by little, more footballers came, including Justin Kluivert (Nice) and Dominik Szoboszlai (RB Leipzig), Chris Richards (loan from Hoffenheim) and Bayern-Diamant Jamal Musiala from the Bundesliga.
Davies followed in 2021.
With the Canadian, Giurgiu made a comedy video on Instagram in December in the style of social media star Khaby Lame (65.8 million Instagram followers).
“It currently has over 5.5 million views.
More than any other hairdresser ”, says Giurgiu, who can now count Davies (“ a totally funny guy ”) among his buddies.
Hairdresser from Geretsried: National player Karim Adeyemi dedicated a goal to him
The celebrity hairdresser also gets along very well with Hernández. "After I cut Michael Cuisance's hair, Luci came to me," says Giurgiu. “He's really nice and shows interest in me as a person. We also talk about personal matters. ”The hair artist has even closer ties to Karim Adeyemi. “He was with me for the first time in August 2020. Now I don't see Karim just as a player, but as a family friend, ”says Giurgiu, who is often invited to Salzburg to play the offensive star.
This was also the case on August 21 last year in Red Bull's game against Austria Klagenfurt (3-1).
"That was my birthday and Karim scored his first goal in the third minute," Giurgiu remembers exactly.
“He then formed an A with his fingers while cheering, dedicating his hit to me.
A super nice gesture that I will never forget. "
The hairdresser, who took first place in the men's haircut category at the Barber Battle in Berlin in 2019, was also honored with Joshua Zirkzee.
“I was the first hairdresser allowed to do his hair.
In the past it was only his mom who cut the tips of his beautiful curls, ”reveals Giurgiu about the FC Bayern striker, who is currently on loan to RSC Anderlecht in Belgium.
