Doing battle in the USA

ISSE Long Beach is America’s answer to Salon International but also plays host to one of the country’s biggest national barbering competitions the Major League Barber Battle. The competition offers four categories: Fastest Fade, Shear Talent, Conservative Cut and the Tag Team Challenge. The Andis team were blown away by how hard the competitors worked and happy to share bags of Andis tools, cash, goodies and these rather fierce looking trophies with the winners (left to right): Edward Mercado for Fastest Fade, Angel Llewellyn for Shear Talent, Alex Bailey for Conservative Cut and for the Tag Team Challenge, Fredo Olan and Ernie Torres. They look like a bunch that’s not to be messed with to us!
