Guest judge Kristal Jnaz posted this to her Instagram after the competition came to its exciting close “What a time. A barber battle through Zoom?! Same firing passion, hard work and dedication to execute the cleanest cut. I’ve attended barber battles since cosmetology school back in 2014 and it’s amazing to see how we adjust with time.”

The competition is still available to watch on Andis Instagram page, @andisclippers, and they have announced the next competition will take place in August! Good luck to all the hopefuls out there, and congratulations to the new Andis Master, Brandon Negron!
