Mojo Barbershop & Vince Garcia, one of the most famous celebrity barbers in California will be holding an exciting hands-on Barber Workshop and Barber Battle. Garcia, a well-established barbershop owner from Hollywood has cut hair for well-known celebrities such as Drake, Ludacris, Kid Cudi, and NBA stars like Dwight Howard and Chris Webber. 

Garcia is collaborating with Hawaii’s very own Mojo Barbershop to share his knowledge and excitement for barbering.  All barbers, aspiring barbers, cosmetologists, and anyone in the hair industry are encouraged to attend.  He will be covering different barbering techniques, the hottest trends in men’s hair, different styling techniques, marketing and branding yourself and much more. 

The Aloha State Barber Battle will directly follow the workshop. Entry for the barber battle is $50. Contestants will go head to head in four different categories. 

·       The fastest fade

·       The best design

·       Best hi/lo fade

Winners of each category will win a trophy, prizes, brand new barber clippers, and bragging rights!  There will be a live DJ, food and drinks, giveaways and more.  A fun event and also a great way for those in the hair industry to mingle and network with each other.
