Semi-final of Barber of the Year 2019 – East Coast

By on November 2, 2019

On Sunday, the final semi-final of the Barber of the Year will be decided in 2019. So far, three finalists have been announced, in the semi-final for the East Coast, 19 barbers will compete in a barber battle. A total of more than 50 barbers will have competed in the third edition of Sweden’s largest and most prestigious industry competition.

The final will be decided on November 24 at the #adaytomovember event at Clarion Hotel Amaranten in Stockholm. But it is not only a final place that is at stake on Sunday, but also the chance to go ahead and represent Sweden at the Nordic Hair Awards 2020 in Copenhagen.

One who previously accepted the challenge with bravur is Amin Iranmanesh from Salong Randevu Barbershop in Gothenburg. He has won both Barber of the Year 2018 and Scandinavia’s first barber competition at the Nordic Hair Awards 2019. This year he is one of the judges in the semi-finals. Chief judge is Kenneth Johnsson “freeSir2.0, master barber with over 30 years of experience.

It is a craft competition where barbers compete in hair and beards. They are allowed to do as they please and they have 60 minutes to complete their work as well as 5 minutes of final styling. The jury assesses seven criteria that include technology, form and styling. A finalist and a second (who gets reserve place for the final) are appointed. In the final, the challenge will be a little bigger, models will be drawn and an international jury will select Barber of the Year 2019.

Barber of the Year 2019 is organized by Barber Supplier Nordic AB and the Swedish Barber Association, an industry organization for barbers that starts during the fall of 2019.
