About the American Crew™ All-Star Challenge
The All-Star Challenge annual competition recognizes the best men’s hairstylist in the world.
The cut. The model. The photograph. Brought together to create the ultimate interpretation of the American Crew man. In addition to honouring stylists across the globe, the All-Star Challenge charges professionals with a passion for men’s grooming to create artistic, styles that express the true vision of the American Crew man. To enter, stylists & barbers had to cut and style a male model using American Crew products and take two black and white pictures of the model from chest-level and above (one face-on, one side profile) in front of a blank background, with no props visible.
