This past weekend the “Urban Barber College” in Concord had what they called, “UBC Barber Battle: Best of the Best”, a competition held to test a barber’s skills. Barbers/Hairstylist’s from all over the Bay Area to Sacramento, to as far south as L.A. competed to see who would be the best. Here are photos of the competition.

There was 4 categories in the competition, the 1st event was the “Fastest Fresh Cut” where the professionals had 10 minutes, and the students had 15 minutes to cut the hair of an individual as clean as possible. The 2nd competition was “Freestyle”, where the barber would free hand the haircut as they use the head as a canvas. The 3rd event was “Portraits”, where the back of the models head would be a canvas, and the stylist would choose a picture of a person they would like to re-create. The final category was the “Classic Cut”, where it is a retro comb over styled hair cut.
