The Hair Games

A Hair Competition and Fashion Show

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all participants, sponsors, and volunteers that has supported The Hair Games since its time of inception from 2012. A huge thank you to The Hair Games team for seeing my vision and sustaining my mission. Together, we have all made The Hair Games what it is today.

The Hair Games is the premier hair competition in Charlotte, NC. In addition to showcasing talented stylists and barbers in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas, The Hair Games uses its platform to support various social movements and give back to charity organizations. The Hair Games is fun and entertaining for the entire family and very community focused.

Once again, I thank you and I pray that The Hair Games continues to be a formative stage for talented artists while also bringing awareness to and strengthening our communities for years to come.
