American Crew 2017 ALL-STAR Challenge Finalists Announced

Tuesday, 04 April 2017 09:12

With submissions literally flying in from all around the world, American Crew All-Star Challenge judges have ahead of them a hard task in selecting only one among the best: the 15 All-Star Challenge Country Winners!


American Crew's All-Star Challenge is the most highly anticipated men’s hairstyling competition in the world, bringing together the best of each country to ultimately create a winning look that not only embodies the brand’s masculine aesthetic, but that also pushes the boundaries beyond today’s current trends.

The 15 international finalists for the 2016-2017 American Crew All-Star Challenge Awards have been announced... and EsteticaNetwork brings you their looks so you can see first hand the caliber of work that it takes to get to the international finalist round!

The All-Star Challenge entrants cut and styled a male model with American Crew products and submitted photos to a judging panel of industry experts who then selected country winners based on technique, styling and their inspiration for a modern, masculine look. The competition combines the key aspects of the art and science in men’s grooming and style –the cut, the model, and the photograph– and brings them all together to deliver the ultimate interpretation of the American Crew man. The top 15 finalists will receive an all-expense-paid trip to the competition finals in Brussels, where they will compete to be recognised as the American Crew 2016-2017 All-Star Challenge Global Champion.

The competition finals will take place in Brussels on May 4-5, with the crowning of the 2016-2017 Global Champion taking place on May 8.

The esteemed global judging panel for the competition will be: Sandra Nygaard, Fashion and Grooming Director, Men’s Health; Sergi Bancells, General Manager Estetica USA, Spain and Latin America,  Sandra Perovic, 2015-2016 All-Star Challenge Global Champion; Theri DeJoode, Global Technical Director, American Crew & Director + Co-owner, Groom for Men; and Paul Wilson, Global Artistic Director, American Crew & Co-owner and Creative Director, Art + Science Salon.
