On August 8th, the Andis Total Look Competition was held at one of the largest beauty industry trade shows around, the Bronner Bros International Tradeshow. About 30 barbers from all over the world showcased their ideas through haircutting, hairstyling, and wardrobe preparations. The challenge for these clipper cutters was to create a hairstyle that complemented the total look of their model. As taught in barber school, every hairstyle isn't for everybody based on their look. As the competition commenced the hair started flying and the manifestation of all the barbers’ ideas were coming to life. It proved to be a tight competition between David Lindsay, Khaliq Mabry & John Ruff based on the degree of difficulty they chose and the selection of relevant and complete total looks of each of their models. John Ruff won by a close margin due to the flawless execution of an 80's boy look featuring a bright yellow color highlighted gumby haircut with intricate designs. John Ruff truly deserved to be the 1st place winner of the Andis Total Look Competition during the 2012 mid-summer Bronner Bros Hairshow.
