Widely considered one of the top men’s grooming competitions among professional hairdressers, the All-Star Challenge is an annual global event that challenges stylists across the world to cut, style and deliver an image of the ultimate interpretation of the modern, classic American Crew man. Each year thousands of submissions are trimmed down to just a select few finalists from countries around the globe.
