Regional Winners of Britains Best Shave 2018 Announced
Nine barbers are celebrating after being named as regional winners of Britain’s Best Shave 2018. The top seven scoring regional winners along with Elvis Gjokaj (last year’s champion) will now go face to face in a shave-off at the national final inside the boxing ring at this year’s Barber UK (Sunday 20 May).
Finalists will battle it out to impress judges on a range of criteria – including preparation, razor technique and post-shave routine, making a final bid for the crown – and the title of Britain’s Best Wet Shaving Barber for 2018.
The final of the competition, organised by the British Barbers’ Association and men’s grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge, will take place at the popular Barber UK trade show at the Birmingham NEC on Sunday 20 May
This year’s Britain’s Best Shave winner will walk away with £500 worth of The Bluebeards Revenge grooming products and merchandise, and a chance to work with the brand – as well as the much-coveted title of Britain’s Best Wet Shaving Barber.
