Skilled and Technical
The competition is defined by industry standards as identified by the SkillsUSA Barbering Technical Committee and the National Barbering Association. The competition is divided into four separate skill performance tasks including haircutting, hair styling, hair color, and beard design and coloring. Creativity is assessed in the creative cut and beard design, while haircutting is evaluated in the recreation of men’s haircuts from a photograph. The competition will include an interview which consists of creating a mini resume with completion of a job application and actual interview.
The career competitions of the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) as a membership benefit following their submission of membership.
