Wish your fella looked more like Robert De Niro? The thespian's facial hair, at least, is now within reach, thanks to Ball and Buck's new in-house coiffeur, Van Capizzano.

The master barber (apparently there are licenses for such things) made his name at Freeman's Sporting Club on Manhattan's Lower East Side. He tells Dig Boston that he sought to meld the hair salon experience with that of the old-school barbershop; soon enough, the likes of De Niro came knocking.

Your XY counterpart can make an appointment with Capizzano by dropping in or calling 617-262-1776. Oh, and did we mention that he'll be appearing in De Niro's next movie? Barber-slash-actor just might be the next "it" hyphenate.—Meaghan Agnew
