Licensed barbers, cosmetologists and students still have time to enter several men’s grooming events sponsored by Andis Company during the Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event. The five competitions include: Fantastic Fades (professional event and student event); Limit-Free Style (professional event and student event); and Lioness (women-only competition). Contestants will be challenged to showcase their clipper-cutting skills and artistic technique on Sunday, June 3 and Monday, June 4.
In addition to Andis Company, The Fantastic Fades and Limit-Free Style competitions are sponsored by Premiere Orlando, SalonCentric and Clubman Pinaud. Open to men and women in both the professional and student categories to showcase their clipper-cutting skills and artistic vision, contestants will be tasked with removing at least a 1⁄2-inch of hair using their Andis tool package to complete their haircut during the 40-minute timeframe.
“This is our third year partnering with Premiere Orlando to highlight men’s grooming and the art of clipper cutting and each year it keeps getting bigger and better,” said Bruce Bock, senior manager of corporate communications for Andis. “This year we’re excited to add a new women-only event to our competition line-up and can’t wait to see the passion and creativity that these ladies will bring to the stage.”
The women-only or “Lioness” competition will feature the toughest, most talented female barbers and cosmetologists from around the country. They will asked to modernize a vintage men’s hairstyle from the 20th century (1901-1999). A male model is required for entry, and contestants will also have 40 minutes to complete the final hairstyle using Andis tools exclusively.
Professional winners will receive $400, while the second and third place finishers will receive $300 and $200, respectively. Student winners will receive $125, while the second and third place finishers will receive $100 and $75, respectively. While there's no deadline for entry, artists are encouraged to register immediately as each competition is limited to 25 contestants.
