Date announced for the virtual Modern Barber Awards 2020

modern barber awards virtual 2020 finalists

Thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Modern Barber Awards 2020 will now be a virtual event held on Monday 7 December from 7pm.

Along with our sponsors MVRCK by Mitch UK, Takara Belmont and Wahl UK we’re excited to broadcast the awards across the Modern Barber Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channels.

With the option of ‘live’ events continuing to look uncertain we’ve made a positive decision to reward the much-deserved finalists with their awards in 2020 rather than postpone to 2021. Let’s face it if the ‘Pandemmy’s’ can do it, so can we!

MB feels strongly that we should go ahead and we are confident we can still celebrate together but in a decidedly ‘2020 fashion’!

Huge congratulations once again to all the entrants and in case you need a recap, here are the Modern Barber Awards 2020 finalists.
