Barber of the Year 2017 finalists are a cut above the rest

The last week of May saw professional and student barbers from across Beds, Bucks and Herts compete for a place in the finals in the 2017 Beds, Bucks and Herts Student and Professional Barber of the Year contests, to be held at the Festival on Sunday 18th June. This year’s competition includes categories for both professionals and students, and is including more top stylists than ever.

The heats took place at the College’s in-house salon The Graduate, which is Milton Keynes College’s commercial Barbers where students are given the opportunity to work alongside professionals and hone their skills, utilising the lessons learned in the classroom for the benefit of members of the public.

Following the completion of this year’s heats, all the finalists have now been chosen ahead of the live finals.

The Barber of the Year finals will be the main attraction on the 18th, starting with the student final at 12pm, followed by the professionals at 1pm.

Before the winners are crowned in both categories, event sponsors Wahl and Chris & Sons will be involved in a series of demonstrations and activities on the main stage, showcasing their outstanding range of products and expertise.
