British barbers are being given the opportunity to showcase their talent, individuality and creativity, to compete to win Wahl’s British Barber of the Year 2016. Like previous years, to enter the competition barbers must email three to six images to showcase their technical ability, visionary flair and demonstrate contemporary barbering trends.

Entrants must also give a brief biography of their background, including career highlights and why they think they’ve got what it takes to be crowned Wahl British Barber of the Year – within 100 words.

Simon Shaw, Wahl (UK) Ltd’s European Artistic Director, commented: “This year I was blown away by the standard of the entrants. This inspired me to re-launch the competition again in 2016, to give even more talented barbers the chance to stand out and be recognised within the industry. It has influenced me to launch additional competitions to allow further opportunities.”

The winners of all competitions will be announced on stage at Salon International 2016 on Sunday 16th October 2016. If you want to enter, please email
