Modern Barber Awards: Calling All Barbershop Teams

Published 07th Dec 2023 by Josie Jackson
There's no 'I' in team, and there's also no 'I in barbershop. From managers to master barbers, apprentices and everyone in between, a barbershop is only as strong as its team. The 'Team' category at the Modern Barber Awards sheds light on this, recognising and celebrating those barber families that prioritise harmonious, cooperative working relationships.

If this sounds like your team, then why not take this opportunity to enter the Modern Barber Awards 2024? Entries close on Friday 16 February, but make sure you leave plenty of time to get your winning entry in.

We'll be asking questions such as 'How have you developed and improved your team in the last 18n months?' and 'Give three examples of how teamwork has contributed to business success'. Remember, you don't have to complete your entry all in one sitting, so why not get started now?

Why Enter?

Cresswell Barber Co. has dominated the Team category the past couple of years, securing back-to-back titles in 2022 and 2023. Having demonstrated their close bond to win the prestigious award, Cresswell Barber Co owner, Natalie Cresswell, said: "Winning the 'Team' category felt amazing back in 2022, so to win it again for the second year in a row, it was totally surreal! We were up against some amazing teams, too.

"The pride I feel for my team is unmatched - they all work so hard on their cuts and themselves, and they make it such a lovely environment for our clients to enjoy. I can’t thank them enough for their loyalty and support, so this award is nothing to do with me, it’s all about them. They one-hundred percent deserve every bit of it."

Top Tips

  • There are so many well-deserving teams in the industry, so if you're really passionate about giving your team the best shot at winning, dedicate some time to your entry form.

  • Words are good, but evidence is great. Back up your entry with photos, statistics and more.

  • Don't be shy - this is your time to show off your team. We want to be blown away with all of your successes, so don't leave anything out.

  • While we'd love to hear about how your barbershop team gets involved in the business, we also want to find out about any extra work you've done - maybe you supported a community project, or helped with fundraising efforts for a charity.

  • Keep your answers clear and concise.
