Modern Barber Awards reasons to watch

We won’t lie it’s been a much longer wait this year to announce the finalists of the Modern Barber Awards 2020 than we ever anticipated. From lockdown through to Trimdependence Day, you guys have been on quite the journey.

Through the toughest of times the industry has shown its mettle. And there couldn’t be a better time to reward the industry and the stars within it.

So without keeping you on the edge of your seat for much longer, we’re thrilled to announce the following people and businesses who have finalised in this years’ Modern Barber Awards. Congratulations!

A huge thank you to all who entered, we were blown away with the number of entries and the talent that thrives within our industry. The final of the awards will now take place virtually on Monday 7 December at 7pm. Look forward to ‘seeing’ you then!
