Are You The Best Team in the Industry?

How often have you heard it said that a barbershop business is only as strong as its team? There’s a reason why this statement is often made — it’s true! From trainees to the most experienced barbers, every member of the team needs to work together to create a successful business.

The Best Team category of the Modern Barber Awards, sponsored by American Crew, is about recognising and rewarding those teams that epitomise working in unison. If this sounds like your team, there is still time to enter the Modern Barber Awards — the closing date for entries is 22 April.

Last year it was the team from The Hoi Polloi in Newcastle who took top honours in this category, but could 2022 be your team’s year to shine?

This is your chance to show how your team really are a barbering family, not just working efficiently, but also being there to support each other when the going gets tough. We also want to see how your team works together to delight clients and even contribute to the wider community.

Stun us with your tales of teamwork, of how your people have pulled together to make your barbershop run like clockwork, keeping clients happy and maintaining morale.


– There are some great teams out there who all deserve recognition, so you’ll really need to impress the panel to carry off this award.

– Think beyond the day-to-day teamwork involved in running an efficient barbershop and provide real evidence of how your team has gone above and beyond.

– We want to see photographs of your team involved in community projects, evidence of how your people have come up with new initiatives that have kept clients clamouring for their services, and we need to be showered with success stories involving your team operating as a united force.
