It’s now or never for all your blooming marvellous barbers out there as the deadline for entries into American Crew’s All-Star challenge looms closer – March 1st (4.59am, to be precise!).

Celebrating it’s 25th anniversary in 2019, American Crew is on the hunt for looks that embody the masculine and timeless aesthetic behind the iconic brand, but that also give a nod to the future of styling. Essentially entrants need to bring the modern, American Crew man to life.

As the largest mens’ hair global showcase, the All-Star Challenge has given this monumental opportunity to more than 10,000 stylists in over 40 countries since its inception. And this year is going to be extra special. To celebrate the brand’s monumental birthday, American Crew will be holding the competition final in New York for the first time.

Following a meticulous review of entries, the top 15 finalists will represent their talent and their countries at the 2019 American Crew All-Star Challenge final, where they will compete during a weekend of artistic exhibition and mastery to become the American Crew 2018-2019 All-Star Challenge Global Champion.
