Event set to be bigger and better than ever before

The British Barbers’ Association and premium men’s grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge have announced the much anticipated return of iconic wet shaving competition, Britain’s Best Shave.

Following the unprecedented success of this year’s event, 2015’s offering is set to be bigger and better than ever before, with spectators invited to watch the final round unfold at the first ever Barber UK at the Birmingham NEC in May 2015.

The competition kicks off early next year with twelve regional heats, with the 15 highest scoring barbers from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales going on to compete for the title in the culmination of the tournament.

The 2015 competition promises to be bigger and better than ever

This year’s battle will take an exciting new twist, with the ten highest-scoring barbers going on to form a super-team which will face off against their American counterparts in an exciting Ryder Cup-style tournament.

The first ever competition earlier this year was a huge success, with over 200 barbers turning out to show off their razor-sharp skills in their local heats. Mayfair barber Parsa Rad, of men’s grooming emporium The Refinery, eventually claimed the coveted title of Britain’s Best Wet Shaving Barber, after blowing away the judges with his attention to detail in the final speed-shaving round.

Mike Taylor, director of the British Barbers’ Association, said that the bar was set to be raised even higher this time around.

“This year’s competition saw an outstanding level of skill, with some really impressive barbers turning up to take part and demonstrating some pretty flawless wet shaving.

“The 2014 event has propelled wet shaving back into the limelight, and with our main goal being to raise industry standards consistently higher and higher, we’re looking forward to seeing what this year’s contestants have got to offer.”

Nick Gibbens, PR and Marketing Manager for The Bluebeards Revenge, added: “Performing the perfect wet shave involves a greater level of skill than many people realise, and it was great to see so many barbers coming forward for the first event and gaining recognition for all of the hard work that they have put in to perfecting their trade.

“With the exposure last year’s event received, we’re expecting to see it expand and grow even further, with a considerable increase in the number of entrants for 2015.”

Barbers wishing to enter are invited to visit and submit their entry today. The deadline for entries is 31/12/2014. And every validated entry will receive a FREE Bluebeards Revenge cut throat shaving set worth £35.
