What is the Florida Barber Expo?
Before we hit you with the heavy info, let’s start by just diving right into what exactly the Florida Barber Expo is. This event is more than just a regional barbering expo, it’s a premier event for the barbering community.
It’s part expo, part barber battle, part barber celebration. The educational seminars at the expo will be presented by some of the top names in the industry and after the expo floor and barber battles will commence.
What makes the Florida Barber Expo different than your average trade show or expo is their unique focus on education. The Florida Barber Expo has set out to make this an event that will up barber’s career and long term success.
Of course, no premiere event is complete without a little friendly competition, check out the full list of competitions here. The barber battles will showcase some of the best in the biz.
This event is finally the answer for the south and south east, giving barbers who may not have had the opportunity to travel to the CT Barber Expo or BarberCon a premiere barbering event right in their own back yard.

Okay, aside from the fact that you’ll be at an amazing event where you can likely get crazy discounts on some of the greatest products out there from your favorite vendors, what are you really going to gain from attending the The Florida Barber Expo?
That’s a long answer to spell out for you, friend, so saddle up and sit tight while we explain.
Tutorials, Demo-Help, and a Ton of Education
There’s almost a full day of classes being led at the Florida Barber Expo that are industry-specific, incredibly advanced, and being led by professionals in the industry. We shouldn’t have to explain this one much further.
You’d be gifted the opportunity to learn, grow, and advance your skills at a faster, more intense rate than you’d usually be able to, as well as cover new skills you might never learn had you not attended.
Advice from the Best-of-the-Best
Did we mention that some of the biggest names in the barber game will be talking to you, teaching you, and working directly with you to help you improve your skills? Opportunities like this don’t come around every single day, so when something like this is presented to you, you have to jump on it. We’ve heard some of the best barbers around from Trevor Moots (@tailorfade), Vimo the Barber (@miami_barber), and Youssef the Barber (@youssefbarber) to the expo’s founders Paul and Kwame (@si_thegroomer & @kwame_thegroomer ) will be in attendance.
Aside from the amazing things you’ll learn from supremely talented people, you have to remember that you’re going to be at an amazing expo-celebration with top barbers in your field – can you say networking opportunity?
This is a great chance to get to know new colleagues, chat, connect, and harvest some collaboration potential.
An Amazing Experience
This is as blunt as we could put it. Sure, you’re going to be learning a ton, meeting great people, using new, top-of-the-line products, and learning from top-tier professionals in your field, but you’re also just going to have a killer time. It’s not a vacation, technically, but it’s about as fun as a vacation would be --- who says you can’t work and enjoy at the same time, right?
