In 2018 The Connecticut Barber Expo team of Advisors, led by Master Barber and Founder Jay Majors, set out on a crusade seeking the top barber influencers, movers and shakers in the industry.

They found it extremely hard to narrow down the Nominees considering there were an abundance of qualified individuals in the rapidly growing Men’s Grooming Category.

The 2020 Barber Grammy Awards is a Grammy inspired event and the Nominees chosen were carefully selected based upon their day-to-day actions in the shop, around their communities and on social media including activities at several hair shows across the nation.

In fact Jay Majors himself Quoted “If we were to nominate all of the Barbers making moves in the industry, the awards night would easily turn into a month long event.”

On behalf of the CT Barber Expo Team we would like to congratulate all of the 2019 Barber Grammy Nominees. Your dedication and perseverance is truly recognized.

To all others who were not nominated this year, continue your efforts- we are confident this awards event will not be the first or last for you.

Lastly, we would love for you to join us at the Connecticut Barber Expo official Pre-Party/Barber Grammy’s on Saturday May 16th 2020. This event will be open to the public and VIP Ticket holders at 8:30 PM as that is when the awards ceremony will begin and please keep in mind that all Nominees are to arrive at 7 PM for cocktail hour.

VOTING END SOON!
