The Raw Talent Barbering Competition

Sponsored by VTCT, is brought to you by Modern Barber Magazine, BARBERFEST and Mike Taylor Education with the aim to provide a platform for barber students and junior barbers to showcase their skills.

Excitingly, the final will take place live at the first-ever BARBERFEST on Monday 5 July at Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel, Brighton where we will have a live competition area for the next generation of barbers to show the industry what they’re made of. And the best news? There’s a £250 prize up for grabs!

Contestants are asked to provide up to four images of ONE haircut they have done as well as a short description of the look and the inspiration behind it in order to enter. Those that are shortlisted as a finalist by our judges will be invited to re-create their look live at BARBERFEST.
