The All-Star Challenge is one of the most widely recognized professional grooming competitions that celebrates stylists from around the world and challenges them to create styles that are modern, expressive and embody the vision of the American Crew man.

Sara’s look was inspired by the classic American Crew man and the need for his hairstyle to fit all of his personalities – from professional to casual.
The 2015-2016 U.S. All Star Challenge judging panel consisted of: American Crew Global Technical Director Theri DeJoode; Men’s Fitness Style and Grooming Editor Barret Wertz; Behind The Chair Founder Mary Rector-Gable.
