Barber Battle Tips by @Lici_LadyBarber

Every coast hosts a battle and some battles travel from city to city. With so much competition and so many different judges, how could you possibly know what to do to win? Every barber at some point battles whether early or later in their career but it seems that it's extremely hard to place in most of these events.

Lici_LadyBarber was recently one of THREE judges at the She's My Barber Battle in Oakland, California. With so many fantastic women competing, it was definitely hard to tell who was going to come out on top.

I caught up with Lici after the event and asked what sets a barber apart from the others during the competition? Is it the haircut only? Or the tools they use? Perhaps just sheer luck of doing a better job than they normally do? And she schooled me on the whole situation so we figured it would be a great idea to share this information with everyone. 

Comment below! Have you battled before? Or are you possibly considering it? Has the video helped you understand the process either way? Let us know.

Finally! The Video You've Been Waiting For...

On November 30, 2014 five women from across the country came to join in on an amazing photo shoot. I've anxiously been waiting to release the women's photos and haircuts but this photo definitely helps in the meantime! 

Featured in the video are mini interviews of Roqkandy, Corina_LadyBarber, Lici_LadyBarber, QueenCutsNRoses, and of course StylistFairy!  Some of these ladies will be at the She's My Barber Battle on January 18th in Oakland, California so don't forget to check them out ahead of time!

The video was filmed and edited by none other than Will Rodriguez at Above The Norm Films who I think has done an amazing job. A big thank you to my amazing sponsor, Always Pro Barbers, photographer Alana Tyler Slutsky, social media expert Tiffany Greenstreet, videographers Will Rodriguez and Erin Yamagata, kick ass assistant Samantha Thomas and Skyla Veltman, booker extraordinaire at Wilhelmina Models Men's Division.
