Meet Wahl Professional's Barber Battle 3 Winners


Wahl Professional challenged barbers to create a mid/low bald fade, Caesar and modern mullet to highlight their skills and ability to teach more complex styles for its Barber 3 competition.

Andrew Rosario (@AndyFadeMaster) of West Palm Beach, FL nabbed first place and an honorary year-long spot on the Wahl Education and Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.). plus a prize package that includes the complete 5 Star line of tools. “It’s amazing to be on W.E.A.T. and be able to create pieces of art on stage with everyone. I can’t wait to start educating with so many great barbers. This competition really does open doors for people who enter,” says Rosario.

Cory Hull (@thehellrazor) of Marysville, CA won second place and also earned an honorary W.E.A.T. membership for 2020 along with a selection of clippers, trimmers and finishing tools. For Hull, being on a team is a dream come true. “When I was asked to join the team, I was so excited. I [appreciate] comradery and being around people who love what they do and are loyal to one another, and in this case loyal to Wahl. I’m extremely pleased to have achieved a goal that I’ve had  for years.”

Josh Pereira (@iamjoshpereira) of Boston scored third place, earning him a spot on the Wahl Select team as well as a barber combo set and prize pack. Says Pereira, “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for Wahl clippers. I am just so honored that this company has given me this opportunity to reach my goals. I’ve learned how important it is to keep moving forward and to never slack off.”

Pushing limits and redefining haircutting continues to be on Wahl Professional’s agenda for 2020, and the brand plans to continue to challenge entrants in Barber Battle 4 with the inclusion of another longer hairstyle.

Prospective participants should be on the lookout for Barber Battle 4 details in mid-2020.
