May was the month for rewarding winners and showcasing excellent barbering skills
The BBA 2017 competitions came to a head in the BBA Boxing ring at Barber UK kicking off with the drama unfolding in the ring on Sunday for the Britain’s Best Wet Shaving finals. Where Elvis Gjokaj of Alley Barbers in Epsom took the title of Britain’s Best Wet Shave Winner 2017, the much-coveted Belt and a range of The Bluebeard Revenge products. It was third time lucky for Elvis so it really pays off to keep entering competitions and invest in improving your skills.
Monday was the finals of BBA British Barber of the year and another tense day in the boxing ring with an excellent showcase of high quality barbering, Jim Williams of Jim the Trim, South Wales took the title of BBA British Barber of the Year 2017, beating an impressive line up with some outstanding work. Along with the title Jim won the BBA Belt, £2,000 and a range of BBA male grooming products.
We also recognised and awarded the finalists of the BBA National Student Barber of the Year competition. The standard of photographs this year made it really hard for the judges who took several days to come to their final decision for the three categories, each winner took away the title of BBA National Student Barber of the Year Winner a prestigious trophy, prize money of £500, Andis Clippers and BBA products. Congratulations to the Winners and we look forward to seeing you enter more BBA competitions.
The Winners are: Hair Cut and Finish – Level 2 - JAMES ROBERTS - Shrewsbury College Facial Hair Design – Level 2 - CAOLAN CARSON - Belfast Met College Precision, Hair Cut and Finish - Level 3 - ADRIAN HAYWOOD - Francesco Group
Barber UK was such a successful event for the BBA giving us chance to meet with our members and network with industry peers, we were very proud to showcase our first Hall of Fame photo-shoot at the show which clearly inspired lots of barbers to enter the monthly competition, you will see many of the images in the barbering trade magazines and look out for a front cover image too, thank you BarberNV for that.
We were very proud to also announce our partnership with VTCT and also launch the Barbering Services Code of Practice as well as signing an agreement to work closely with an international partner Barber UK 2017. It was a great show and we are excited to see already the ideas for 2018
