On November 17th 2014 8 finalists all gathered in Las Vegas to compete in Underground Revolution’s Men’s Haircutting Championships hosted by Peter Anthony. Andy Bates, Senior Stylist at AJFsalon and part time teacher here at Federico, was one of those 8. Finalists competed to place in one of three categories, Best Over All, Best Technique/Execution, and Best Picture. Andy was able to take second place at the event, winning the Best Execution and Technique category.
His model presented a few unique challenges. He had a lumpy parietal ridge with a flat occipital and a deep receding hairline at his temples.
The model wanted to keep his length but felt his previous look was too moppy, so Andy went for a mod/brit rock look with structure within the shape and soft edges. The end result had a Bob Dylan meets Daryl Dixon vibe to it.
Congratulations Andy on an Amazing job!
