RULES & REGULATIONS

READ AND FOLLOW ALL RULES AND REGULATIONS… “Ignorance of rules excuses no one”– is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law or rule may not escape penalty for violating or not doing that law or rule merely because because he/she was unaware of its content.
This competition is open to Barbering Students in Barbering School or in a dual Cosmetology/Barbering Program.. You must upload your student credentials and state issued ID during the registration process.
This competition does not limit or restrict by race, gender, creed color or nationality.
Only ages 18 and older are allowed to compete and be models.
Competitor has to make sure that the model signs and submits all paperwork and waivers to participate or risk disqualification.

MODELS: You MUST provide two forms of ID to registration for this competition to show proof of your age and a photograph (for example, a birth certificate and driver’s license or a birth certificate and a passport or a birth certificate and a school ID card with your name on it). Because age can be deceiving, your model must prove their age. Proof that the model is at least 18 years of age. Without it, the model cannot be used.
STUDENT COMPETITOR: Must upload active proof of student status from your school. Please contact the Director of Competitions at the email listed below at the bottom of the rules if you have issues with providing student status from your school.

PLEASE NOTE: Inspecting your work before completion, to correct symmetry, is vital. Design Lines will have NO EFFECT if not executed well. And choosing the right model is critical to the end result. Please consider the skin of the head and face as a canvas for your artistic work.

RULES & REGULATIONS

Within the competition arena there are rules that must be in place to separate the average from the superior. Being good at your craft doesn’t make you GREAT and/or outstanding. 

Examples:

*Being late is not being the best… Even if you cannot help the circumstances that made you late…

*Not maintaining the proper professional attitude is not being the best. You have to be able to read the situation and change your attitude to play fair and be a good competitor.
 
*Not being prepared with the proper equipment is not being the best… You need to think through your planning and execute properly so you will be on time and have EVERYTHING YOU NEED. It is not the responsibility of Bronner Bros. to help you have what you need, only to provide what is stated in the rules and regulations.
*If the competition is below your expectations —that is where your creativity and ingenuity should step in to make your creation outstanding no matter what you are given.  We cannot control each competitors expectations. This is our “Competition Mindset.” 

The Competition promise:
Not reading rules and regulations, arriving late, arguing with the staff, disrespecting fellow competitors, using your phone when told not to, not being present (competitor and model),  not having your head in the game (physically and mentally), and coming unprepared will lead you to point deduction and you will not have enough points to place or qualify as a winner. Don’t start out in the negative with point deductions… Be positive that you are prepared.

FYI: In past Beauty Shows, competitors that chose to disregard any rule had significant point reduction and severely decreased their opportunity to win the competition.

FYI: Many competitions have very close scores. Sometimes, the final judges decisions have been based on the amount of hair that is left on the floor and if the lengths and amounts are within the rules and regulations governed for the competition.
