    Here's the before and after.

    A close shave for San Jose Sharks forward Brent Burns raised thousands of dollars for charity Friday.

    Burns walked into the Sharks facility with his well-known long hair and beard.

    Then he sat down for a trim from teammates.

    The teammates took everything.

    In a matter of minutes the ZZ Top like beard and shoulder-length locks were gone.

    Burns had a clean-shaven face and a bald head.

    The hair cut had a purpose.

    It was to raise money for two charities. One helps military families and another funds cancer research.

    Fans who donated $50s or more will get a signed before and after photo of Burns.

    The campaign raised more than $20 thousand to be split among the charities.

    Below are images of the event posted to Twitter.
