Is your college inspiring the next generation of master barbers?

As part of the 2019 Scottish Student Barber competition, SPUK has teamed up with Andis and the Great British Barbering Academy to offer colleges the opportunity to get involved and showcase their amazing students’ barbering skills in Scotland.

The award will be presented to the college that enters the most students into the Scottish Student Barber Competition and will also win a full day of training with an Andis Educator worth £1000.

The winning college will be announced in the live final along with the Scottish Student Barber and will be crowned the Best Scottish College of 2019.

The Scottish Barber show will be held at the SEC, Glasgow on Sunday 28th and Monday 29th April, alongside Scottish Hair & Beauty.
