How much do you know about barber battles?
These competitions have been around for a while, but lately they have become even more mainstream thanks to shows like Cedric’s Barber Battle. These competitions aren’t just for television, however, they have graced the stages of beauty events and local schools.
Featuring some of the biggest competitors, and the most amazing looks, Barber Battles have not only begun to turn skilled barbers into superstars, they have also produced some amazing trends.
Those fades, undercuts, and shaved designs that have been cuttin’ up your social may have begun their journey in the battle of the barbers.
Look inside these bouts for the buzzcut, and check out some off the chart looks these battles create.
Battle It Out!
It’s time to battle!
At their base, Barber Battles run on a bracket with two or three cutters going head to head as they show their work. One by one they are eliminated until only one stands as king or queen.
No importa si ganas o pierdas, las experiencias son las que quedan y te impulsan a seguir luchando.

Barbering competitions, and even barbering in general, is not just for the men of the world. Some of the best barbers are women, and some of the most amazing barbering styles are done of the long locks of both men and women.
How will you show your skill?
Show Your Skills
Barber Battles are broken out into many different categories, and depending on the battle you could see more of less of the skills and styles you are interested in.
Traditionally, each category focuses on one specific look. This means you can hone your skill in one area if you so desire. Of course, some of the most successful barber battle champions set fire in many different categories.
If you are planning on setting your skill, you could feature your fire in Fastest Fade, Low Fades, Beard Work, Graffiti Art, and more.
