Modern Barber Awards Entries Open

Will You Enter the Best Apprentice Award?

The excitement is building over this year’s Modern Barber Awards, and you can still enter until 22 April, 2022.

Whatever stage you are at in your barbering career, there’s a category for you. For those just starting out, the Best Apprentice category is a great way to showcase new talent and can be an amazing springboard for a career in barbering.

The Best Apprentice category, sponsored by Andis,  is all about discovering budding talent. This is the chance to reveal the skills and passion of the next generation of barbering pros. The entry needs to be made by the apprentice’s direct manager, so if you think you have what it takes to be the 2022 Best Apprentice speak to your boss now! Or if you are a manager who wants to shine a light on a particularly promising apprentice, this is your chance to celebrate them. What better way to motivate a hard-working team member than by helping them achieve recognition for their efforts?

Only barbers who have been qualified for under a year can be entered for this award.


– Our judges want to see how an apprentice has gone above and beyond to show their commitment and passion for their role within a business.

– Make sure you back up any claims with real examples of how they have proved they are a star apprentice with a bright future in barbering.
