Hair-raising expo planned for North Versailles area

September 24, 2016 by  

Hairstylists and barbers who live and work in North Versailles and the surrounding areas are invited to attend an event that has been planned just for them.

The Pittsburgh Barber and Stylist Expo, which is being organized by Major League Barber, will provide attendees with more than eight hours of training in everything from haircutting to marketing their services through social media. There will also be a barbering competition, a design/cut and color contest, and a traditional haircut contest, and a student barber contest. The winners will receive cash, prizes, and a trophy. Special awards for an event such as this can be designed by a company that provides printing services.

In addition to the training and contest, a variety of vendors will be on site to provide information and demonstrations of what they have to offer. Spaces are still available for anyone interested in setting up a display during the event.

Tickets to take part in the expo start at $20 if purchased in advance. Vendor passes and contest entries can also be obtained ahead of time on the tradeshow’s website.

The Pittsburgh Barber and Stylist Expo has been scheduled to take place in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Green Tree, which is located at 500 Mansfield Ave in Pittsburgh. It will be held on November 20 from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm. Further details can be obtained on its Eventbrite page.
