Andis Total Look Competition Showcases Barbering Creativity
The Andis Total Look Competition held at the Georgia World Congress Center August 16 at the mid-summer Bronner Brothers International Beauty Show brought competitive heat to the main stage. The prestigious barber competition had 23 competitors from around the country vying for the top three prizes.
“The Andis Total Look competition challenges contestants to be creative and consider the complete image, not just the hair,” says Andis lead educator and past winner, Kenny Duncan. “I can attest personally, past winners of the contest have credited the competition in helping them take their skills and career to the next level; growing personally and professionally.”
Twenty three barbers from across the country had 45 minutes to create a finished hairstyle with Andis tools in front of more than 500 spectators. The competition required a complete haircut of at least half inch of hair removed and a head-to-toe themed look. Contestants were judged on technical execution, originality, new ideas, suitability and head contour.
William Short from Raleigh, NC took first place with his model “junior classic man” followed by second place; J. Alexander of Louisville, KY and his model “Skittles.” Tristan King from Fort Wayne, IN rounded out third place with his “classic man.”
Andis prize packs were awarded to the winners and each contestant received the Andis Excel Ultra detachable blade clipper, Superliner Trimmer with bonus shaver head and other Andis essentials.
