And we’re not talking about your ink, bruh. 12 talented artists will have 45 minutes to lay down their choice of creative hair design on their model. Artists will have plenty of time to get setup and when the buzzer sounds, it’s on! Contestants are competing for cash and prizes and there are 3 guaranteed winners! Judges will be evaluating based on creativity, intricacy of work, and overall appearance. Click “compete” to enter the competition.

The live Hair-Jam segment of the New England Barber Social event features a few rotations of multiple barbers on main-stage cutting hair simultaneously to the beats.
Our DJ is spinning old-school hip-hop, you're chilling with a cocktail taking it in, dope barbers are demonstrating cutting and styling techniques, our emcee is floating and catching soundbites from the featured artists on what they're up to, and everyone is enjoying the vibe.
It's basically a chillaxed cutting showdown where you can pick up some tips, support your featured artist hommies, and catch some steeze from big-name barbers. You know, appealing education designed with a rad user experience in mind. Because that's how we do.
We have 2 rotations that will allow up-to 15 barbers to throw down on main-stage over the 7PM-9PM jam session. To apply, click the below link, specify that you want to cut in the Hair-Jam, and include your Instagram handle. We'll follow up with you to confirm and share additional details.
