German Hair Stylist Wins American Crew Challenge

June 2, 2014

PORTUGAL: Jerome Kantner of Mainz, Germany won the 2013-2014 All-Star Challenge, the annual global competition that recognizes the best men’s hair stylists in the world. The American Crew All-Star Challenge focuses on the art of men’s grooming—creativity, technique and one’s interpretation of masculinity in the modern world.

“Jerome’s look exudes classic American Crew with meticulous barbering skills and refined proportions,” said Craig Hanson, American Crew creative director. “The wardrobe styling was fresh and masculine, and the art direction perfectly captured an authentic message of the modern man.”

More than 1100 stylists from 18 countries entered the competition.

“American Crew recognizes that grooming is one of the oldest historical art forms,” said David Raccuglia, founder of American Crew and a judge in this year’s competition. “The competitive arena that we create for these exceptional talents drives the trends and fuels inspiration for hairdressers everywhere.”
