A Co Armagh man was flown to England on Friday to style the hair of two Liverpool FC stars.

Ryan Cullen was asked to do England and Liverpool player Adam Lallana's hair, as well as Liverpool captain and England player Jordan Henderson's.

The Liverpool fan took to Instagram to share the news with his 54,000 followers.

"So this happened today! My boys Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson flew me over to get them ready for their match  tomorrow! Being an LFC fan I'm overwhelmed!" he wrote.

"You wanna see the grin on my face today! Two lovely lads! Good luck tomorrow lads!"

Liverpool are set to play away to Crystal Palace at 5:30pm on Saturday.

Cullen has previously had other clients go to great lengths to get their hair done by him, with a fellow barber travelling from England to visit his Newry salon.

Ryan Hughes travelled 250 miles each way to visit Ryan Cullen Hair.

Cullen posted a photo of the pair and said he was “humbled” by the move.

He said: "This morning I arrived into "work" like any other Saturday... half asleep. Lol. My first client of the day, 8am, was already there and raring to go."

"Ryan is from Southport near Liverpool and flew all the way across the pond with his other half to get a haircut from myself. I have been smiling all day and feel so incredibly humbled by this. He is also a fellow barber which makes it all the more special. A huge thank you to him for making the trip.
