HIRSUTE HEROES: It’s beard against beard and mo against mo as Barber Expo comes to NEX

Do you have a beard that’s all business? Is your moustache generally described as being marvelous?

Well now’s the chance to pit your luxurious facial locks against the best hair farmers this region has to offer because the 2021 Proraso Beard and Moustache Competition is coming to town next month!

The competition is part of the upcoming Barber Expo heading to NEX on Sunday 11 July and gives Newcastle’s hairiest gents the chance to show off their hirsuteness across three categories – Small Beard Verte, Full Beard (10cm+), Moustache, and Freestyle.

Aside from having the bragging rights afforded to those with award-winning faces, category champs will also take home $500 and prize packs from grooming boffins Proraso Australia, ensuring that award-winning face mane remains at a championship standard!

So, if your mo rivals the likes of Ron Swanson, Hulk Hogan or Magnum P.I, and if your beard would put ZZ Top to shame, this one’s for you!

The Barber Expo, an initiative of barber industry publication Cutthroat is a celebration of all things snipping, cutting, and styling, showcasing the latest industry products and services and featuring a range of workshops and a bunch of fun stuff for anyone interested in checking out the latest on the men’s lifestyle scene.

Some highlights, aside from the Beard and Moustache comp, include workshops hosted by the likes of Australian Hairdressing Council Director Sandy Chong, the Barber Brands International Barber of the Year Competition, and the TAFE NSW Apprentice of the Year Competition.

All in all, it sounds like quite the hair raising event!

The 2021 Barber Expo is on at The NEX on Sunday 11 July. Head here for more info, a full program, and to enter the Beard and Moustache Competition.
