There are selfies with Russell Wilson. Snapshots with the Legion of Boom. Even a photo with soccer star Clint Dempsey.
The pictures of clients on Mark Baysinger's cellphone tell a story of just how far the Kennewick barber has come in the past year.
His haircuts have shown up on TV screens, billboards and magazines around the country. There has been a trip to the Super Bowl, a vacation to Los Angeles to cut hair before the ESPY awards and exclusive parties for the stars.
Baysinger was even recruited by Wilson to be his barber when the Seahawks quarterback needed a haircut before visiting the White House. Wilson decided to cut his hair after growing it out during the Seahawks' Super Bowl run.
Never miss a local story.
Wilson now turns to Baysinger for his weekly haircut -- a close-cut fade -- and calls him in for special events, such as when Wilson recently was asked to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Baysinger's shop on West Clearwater Avenue, called On the Mark, is the busiest it's ever been. His clientele base of Seahawk players has ballooned to more than 20, including some of the most high-profile players in the NFL.
Now, Baysinger, age 31, is looking to feed off his recent success and expand his business, possibly creating an upscale shop in the Bellevue area, he said. He also wants to grow his On the Mark brand through hair and clothing lines.
"I couldn't have foreseen any of this happening in my wildest dreams," he said. "To involve your love and passion, and God-given ability, with your favorite team when they are in the Super Bowl era is something you can't write in Hollywood."
The Herald featured Baysinger, originally from Sunnyside, last January as he prepared to travel to the Super Bowl to cut Seahawk players' hair before the big game. The trip was made possible by All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, Baysinger's trustiest client and friend, whom he credits for making his dream a reality.
The story garnered national attention during the week leading up to the Super Bowl.
Baysinger first started cutting the hair of former Seahawk Brandon Browner last season after reaching out to the cornerback through Instagram. The two met while Browner was in the Tri-Cities as part of the 12th man tour.
Soon, Baysinger traveled to Seattle and Browner connected him with Thomas, who had recently cut off his long dreadlocks. Baysinger started giving Thomas haircuts, and his list of clients grew as the historic season that ended with a championship went on.
That list now includes Thomas, Wilson, Kam Chancellor, Bobby Wagner, Malcolm Smith, K.J. Wright, Russell Okung, Percy Harvin, Bruce Irvin, Derrick Coleman, Robert Turbin, Justin Britt, Paul Richardson, Ricardo Lockette, Cassius Marsh, Phil Bates, Jesse Williams and others.
"Everything has happened so fast," Baysinger said as he sat in his shop, dressed in a black shirt with Thomas' picture on it and a Seahawks hat. "I'm just now starting to catch up."
Baysinger started out cutting hair in Sunnyside, where he owned his own shop. The lifelong Seahawks fan moved the sports-themed shop to the Tri-Cities, first settling down in Pasco before moving to Kennewick.
The couches and chairs at On the Mark are now routinely full of a diverse crowd waiting for haircuts. Baysinger and barbers Cedric Moss and Humberto Mendez specialize in fades, tapers, designs and other haircuts that cost $15 for kids and $20 for adults.
Business has taken off since Baysinger started working with the Seahawk players, the barbers said. And all three are hopeful that success continues as the 12th-man fan base grows and the team continues to win.
"It's done a lot for everybody's clientele," said Moss, 27, of Richland. "And it's only getting better. You can't beat that kind of support from the Seahawks fan."
Baysinger told the Herald a lot of credit for his success goes to the 12th man and the approach the Seahawk players not only take toward football, but more importantly toward life.
The father of two said being around the players and experiencing how hardworking and driven they are has made him a better man.
"Once you are associated with the Seahawks and the 12th man, the fans show you a lot of love," he said. "That's why our fans are so special. The energy the Seahawks exude is special."
Although Baysinger has plans to expand, he has no intentions of closing down the Kennewick shop, he said. He wants to be able to grow his operation in a way that one day he is able to give back to the Tri-City and Sunnyside areas.
While Baysinger is living out a lifelong dream, he hasn't stopped looking to the future.
His ultimate goal is to try and open up schools that teach students how to be high-end barbers and cut men's hair, he said. He also wants to give students skills so they can brand themselves and handle finances.
"I want to have the premier gentlemen's cutting school in the nation," he said. "We are just getting started."
