Georgia Is Student Barber Of The Year Finalist

Barbering apprentice Georgia Rowley has snipped her way to the finals of the national BBA Student Barber of the Year competition.

The 20 year-old hairdresser, who works at Fratelli salon in Cambridge and trains at Cambridge Regional College, has won through to the last 10 in the Classic Student of the Year category.

Georgia impressed the judges with her sharp cutting and neat styling showcased in photographs of her work. The competition, run by the British Barbers’ Association, is designed to discover and promote young talent in the industry,

She said she was thrilled to win through to the final.

“I wasn’t expecting it and it was really exciting to hear I was in the final,” she said. “I love barbering because I like the attention to detail that’s involved. Men’s grooming is a growing area right now.”

The winners will be announced at the national Barber UK exhibition on 23 May, with the judges making their final decision based on the competitors’ photographs of their work.

CRC lecturer Tracy Gardiner said Georgia was a very talented hairdresser.

“We’re absolutely delighted that she has won through to the finals of such a prestigious competition,” she said. “Georgia works hard and is very skilled at barbering and hairdressing, and an outstanding apprentice.”

Announcing the finalists, the BBA said: “There has been some incredible talent this year and it will be a tough job for our judges to decide on the winners.”
