The Buffalo Bills are playing the Kansas City Chiefs today in the AFC Championship Game and Bills fans, also known as Bills Mafia, have been heading to local barbershops to get show their team spirit.


The team’s success has directly led to fans getting designs and such to show their support. But this trend isn’t new, it’s not unusual for sports fans, especially football fans, to get their team’s logo shaved into their head as hair art or even have their hair colored into their team’s colors. It’s also not unusual for this to be a prop bet among friends – loser gets their most hated team shaved into their head.


Below, we take a look at some of the work from local Buffalo barbershops since the NFL Playoffs began and some other team designs that have stood out over the years.
