Open chair at Modern Barber LIVE - get behind it! On the 11th and 12th June at Barber Connect, Modern Barber LIVE and American Crew will unveil an education stage designed just for you. Open Chair is a chance to showcase your skills and styles to some of the 5000 to 7000 barbers who visit the event across two days.

So if you want to strut you stuff behind one of the five waiting Belmonts, email your contact details, social media names and an example of the work you'd like to recreate for the stage to [email protected] before June 1st. We're looking for any hair texture, any cut, any style, as long as it showcases your best skills. Stage compère Alan Beak of Ruger Barber will pick a variety of looks on June 2nd based on the images we receive.

You'll need to provide your own model and equipment. In return you'll get amazing exposure, the coverage in Modern Barber post-show and a goody bag! The Open Chair segment is not a competition. If you make the stage you are already a winner. Good luck!
