To honor future cosmetology and barbering professionals, Sport Clips hosts an annual competition for students to get creative and showcase their knowledge of men's haircutting.

"These students already have impressive creative and technical skills, and Sport Clips uses this competition as a way to recognize their hard work and talent," says Mary Burlingame, future professional talent specialist for Sport Clips. "This is one of the most exciting times for stylists and professionals in our industry, with so many opportunities available when they graduate and prepare to launch their careers. Of course, we want them to consider Sport Clips as the place their career can grow and flourish with ongoing training and prospects for growth in a locally owned store or with the company nationally." 

This year's 2021 winners are:

  • Nancy Gonzalez, Ogle School in Arlington, Texas
