Andis Total Look Competition Takes Center Stage At Georgia World Congress Center¬óBarbering Showcase Changes Location To Accommodate Larger Audience


Atlanta, GA (February 2015) –The Andis Total Look Competition held at the Georgia World Congress Center Sunday, February 22, 2015 at the mid-winter Bronner Brothers International Beauty Show had a whole new look and feel this year. The prestigious barber competition was held for the first time on the show floor’s center stage, complete with jumbo video screens.

“The Andis Total Look competition challenges the contestants to be creative and consider the complete image, not just the hair,” say Aileen Nunez, Andis international manager of education and style. “Past winners of the contest have credited the competition in helping them take their skills and career to the next level; growing personally and professionally.”

Twenty-eight barbers from across the country commanded the attention of an audience of more than 600 people as they had 45 minutes to create a finished hairstyle with Andis tools. The competition required a complete haircut of at least half inch of hair removed and a head-to-toe fashion look. Contestants were judged on technical execution, originality, new ideas, suitability and head contour.

James Pope of Elite Beauty and Barber Salon in Atlanta earned first place with his model “the Prince;” followed by second place Johnnie Akons of Legacy Cuts in Chicago with his “fashionable Gumby;” and Tre Trimz of Ultimate Barber Lounge in Charlotte, NC rounded out third with his “dapper gentleman.” Andis prize packs were awarded to the winners and each contestant received the Andis MVP detachable blade clipper, GTX trimmer, Bump Care and other Andis essentials.
