Andis Company has announced that registration is now open for men’s grooming experts to compete in the first-ever Fabulous Fades Competition on the CosmoProf Center Stage at America’s Beauty Show on Saturday, March 25. Professionals will demonstrate their ability to create both classic and cutting-edge looks using Andis tools on live male models.

Cost for registration is $100 and all competitors will take home an Andis tool package valued at more than $150. There will be a total of $1,200 in prizes awarded.

Kenny and Price will also be presenting on British barbering on the mainstage at ABS. The session will include inspiration on melding precision fades with the latest British barbering trends, including longer, textured styles and freehand techniques.
