NZ Hair & Barber LIVE COMPETITIONS

Live Competitions 2

Hair & Barber New Zealand (H&BNZ) was overjoyed to announce the successful return of Live Competitions, for the first time in over four years! While photographic competitions offer a brilliant space for creatives, nothing beats the excitement of competing and witnessing creative skills in real time. To be able to complete a hair look in 50 minutes is no mean feat. H&BNZ sincerely thanks all the competitors who participated. We look forward to growing New Zealand’s competitive opportunities for the hair industry, from strength to strength. 

Thank you to our wonderful judges.
