COMPETITION RULES

        1. Each competitor must provide a live model – no mannequins. All competitors and models must be eighteen (18) years of age or older. Photo ID for both competitor and model is required.

        2. At the start of the competition, the competitors will have 10 minutes to set up their station and will receive their assortment of Andis® tools. During this time competitors can adjust the blades of the clippers provided if they are able to perform this task in the given set-up time of 10 minutes. There will not be any extra time given for blade adjustments, nor will the start of the competition be delayed for this reason.

        3. All barbering techniques must be done exclusively with the Andis® tools provided. The use of straight-edge razors, razor blades and/or shears is allowed for detailing and cutting the longer-length areas. If any other clippers or trimmers are used than the Andis tools provided, the competitor will be disqualified.

        4. Competitors will have 40 minutes to complete the haircut and finished style and are required to remove at least ½ inch of hair. “Clippers down” will be announced at the close of the competition and you must stop cutting and/or styling even if the look is not complete. At their discretion, judges may disqualify a participant for cutting beyond the time limit.

        5. All models’ hair must be cut during the competition. Competitors are not allowed to cut, trim, shape or preset the model’s hair before the competition begins. All cut hair MUST be left on the floor and participants MUST stay at their station for the duration of the competition and judging.

        6. Competitors are encouraged to bring their own finishing tools and products including combs, brushes, spray bottles with water as these will NOT be provided.
