​This week we first broke news that Sweet Chick owner John Seymour had seized the iconic Pink Pony space next door at 176 Ludlow, and is transforming it into a coffee shop/barbershop hybrid. He’s teamed up with manager-partner Kyle Martin on the project, slated to debut on February 19.

As previously reported, the four-table coffee shop is positioned front-of-house, and utilizes the Pink Pony’s old bar-top; a four-chair barbershop straddles the middle of the space; office space rounds out the last third of square-footage in the back.

Time Out New York picks up our tablescraps and learns that the new multitasking venture is dubbed Ludlow Coffee Supply and Ludlow Hair Supply (Air Supply?). It’ll offer a “proprietary blend” of coffee roasted in Red Hook with a selection of “light bites.”

But what about hair in the food? This seems like it’ll get interesting. DOH, anyone?
