Calling all students & apprentices!

The future of barbering is only as strong as the next generation of hair pros coming through the ranks and encouraging and nurturing this talent is something Modern Barber Magazine and Salon International take very seriously. This is why Modern Barber are once again teaming up with Mike Taylor Education to bring you the Raw Talent Barbering Competition 2024.

Open for entries, the Raw Talent Barbering Competition gives a platform to barbering students and apprentices, offering them the chance to show the industry what they can do, while presenting them with a career springboard like no other.

The first round of the competition is judged based on photographic entries, but finalists will get to compete live at Salon International 2024 at ExCeL London. It’s a great atmosphere in which to show the barbering world just what you are made of — everyone there is behind you and wanting you to succeed!
