From cropped fringes to buzz cuts, it will all be on show at the three hour barbering extravaganza. The event will take place at the College’s Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline on Tuesday 5 September at 6.30pm. It will consist of live demonstrations showcasing the latest trends and styles in barbering from well-known industry professionals. This will include Tom Baxter from Tom Baxter Hair in Newcastle and also Sam Massey, Eric Begg and Greg Forrest from Slicks Barbers in Glasgow. 

The GBBB is renowned for touring up and down the country, putting on entertaining and informative live shows for hairdressing and barbering students, lecturers and industry professionals. 

During the day, the GBBB will provide Fife College staff and students with an invaluable training session, coaching them on beard sculpting, cutting techniques and product recommendation. As this will take place at the start of the academic year, this will be an exciting opportunity for the students to gain a greater insight into what skills they will develop throughout their course and the job prospects it could lead to. 

Curriculum Manager for Hairdressing at Fife College, Emma Evans is excited to meet the Barber Bash team and hopes that many students and local businesses will take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn from such successful barbers. Said Emma: “This event is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring barbers looking to gain new skills or for more experienced barbers looking to enhance their existing skills. 

“I hope to see many representatives from barbers and salons across the whole of Scotland attending and I’m sure it will be an event to remember.”

Tickets are £25 and can be purchased directly from the GBBB at or by calling 01704 548881.
