Battle of the Barbers
To the men and women that live behind the comb, the Western Slope Barber Battle is a ceremonious time where years spent cutting, clipping, trimming, buzzing, and shaving are put to the test as the Grand Valley’s finest barbers go head to head in a demonstration of their 2,000-year-old craft.
The 2nd Annual Western Slope Barber Battle will be held this Sunday, April 29th at 12 pm at the Two Rivers Convention Center. Among the masterful Grand Valley barbers competing will be, the owner of Downtown Grand Junction’s Bejarano’s Barbering, Chris Bejarano.
“I’ve been a barber now for six years, as a third generation barber, I was born and raised in barber shops pretty much my whole life,” Bejarano said while trimming a local patron’s hair. “Everybody that sits in the chair usually has a story to tell, so that’s really what I love the most, just getting to meet people and hear their stories.”
Sunday night, barbers like Bejarano will come from all over the Grand Valley to be apart of a story much bigger than cutting hair. They will take part in a story about community, art, and passion for an age-old proffession. Join us Sunday night in being part of that story.
