Find Out Who Won The 2019 Sport Clips “The Look” Competition

Sport Clips National Huddle Find Out Who Won The 2019 The Look Competition News

Here’s Who Won The 2019 Sport Clips “The Look” Competition

It wouldn’t be a Sport Clips National Huddle without the annual “The Look” competition, and this year, 3,100 managers, coaches, area developers, team leaders and stylists made their way to Las Vegas for the 2019 Huddle and watched on as six Sport Clips stylists from across the U.S. and Canada displayed their haircutting skills and creativity on stage. 

 

Similar to last year’s competition, each finalist had 15 minutes on Sunday night to complete most of the haircut while the judges observed their technique. Then, on Monday morning, they had 5 minutes on stage to finish the cut and style their model’s hair—while the judges looked on and every single attendee loudly cheered! Keep reading to find out who the judges were and who won it all.

 

“The energy and excitement of these professional stylists really demonstrates what it means to do what you love and love what you do,” says Julie Vargas, Sport Clips VP of Career Opportunities. “Sport Clips is a winning opportunity for thousands of stylists who serve clients’ haircare needs in communities all across North America. It’s fun to showcase the significant talent of these professionals, and we hope it encourages other stylists to consider Sport Clips as a place to work, demonstrate their creativity and expand their careers.”
