How Hair Competitions Can Help Your Career
As a beauty and barber school student, have you ever attended a competition event? If you have, you may have had a chance to see or participate in a “barber battle” or hair competition at a show. When you are in school learning the hair trade, it can be valuable to show off your new found skills at a hair competition. Don’t be nervous! These events can truly take your skills to the next level, have you immersed in a super creative environment, and get you used to some of the pressure that comes with being a top tier stylist or barber. Plus, you can actually win some really great prizes and gain valuable experience that you can use in the real world, when you head into your career path after school is over.
Hair Competitions Are Great For Your Career
By getting out there and signing up for a well known competition, you are putting your face and your name directly on your work for people in the industry to see and admire. You can gain exposure this way, which might even lead to the job offer of your dreams. When salons are hiring, they are going to look for students who weren’t afraid to put themselves out there to showcase their skills. Winning some of these competitions is going to look great on your resume, that’s just a given.

It’s a perfect way to learn and showcase your skills as a beauty and barber student, new graduate, or even as a seasoned professional.
