The Barber City crew is working hard towards hosting a successful event and very much look forward to seeing everyone on the floor to compete in one or all events.

Without you we can’t hold a competition. This event is to show case the skills of all our barbers in NZ and share talents and experiences.


Due to the outbreak of the Delta strain of Covid 19 in Auckland in August 2021, Barber City 2021 will be cancelled if New Zealand does not return to Alert level 1 by 26th September 2021.

A consideration of running the event at level 2 will be considered depending on the number of entrants in each event.

In the event Barber City is cancelled a full refund of your money paid will be reimbursed to your nominated account. You will be contacted via email of any cancelation occurs as well as being notified on Instagram and Facebook.
