Urban Beatz and Cutz 2
This one-day event is all about cutting hair, but it’s also a celebration of music, fun and connection. Described as a “jam-packed, hip hop throw down” the battle starts with a day full of hair industry education before shifting to the “synergy of a barber battle with live hip hop and dance performances.”
The barber battle is on June 16 from 6 until 11 p.m.
