You’ve heard of a face-off — well, how about a hair-off? In places all over the world, the barbershop is a community institution, but its function as a studio is often overlooked. With intricate fades and line patterns in demand, not to mention the whole emerging facial-hair game, the barber is as much an artist as any clothing designer. Tonight, the Barbershop Connect Showcase gathers the most talented clippers from across the country for a live Barber Battle. The pressure is on and the clock is ticking as they display their original work on some daring volunteers, armed with nothing but clippers and a pair of scissors. The winner gets a custom barber chair by Mr. Beauty Equipment. For $5, you can enter to win one too, with proceeds going to help barbers in need
