BarberSociety Live is a unique barber event in Amsterdam. It features a diverse mix of shows, seminars and product presentations from industry-related and lifestyle brands aimed at barbers. This fourth edition of BarberSociety Live will be a two-day event again at the Westergasfabriek exhibition centre in Amsterdam.

The first day, Sunday, 7 April, will be for barbers/men's hair stylists only. The second day, Monday, 8 April, will be open to everyone who is interested.

So, we hope to welcome hairdressers, customers from the barbershops, friends of barbers, people from the fashion industry etc. It's the not-to-be-missed event for barbers from across Europe and beyond and for everyone who is interested in the world of barbering!

We’re delighted to see BarberSociety Live keeps growing. Next to barbers and men's hairdressers, all interested parties were able to experience our wonderful trade on the second day that was open to everyone. The event also attracts a growing number of international visitors. The addition of two battles to the programme contributed to that. It’s great and educational to see the cultural differences in the cutting techniques.

We’ve received so many positive reactions and it makes us incredibly proud to hear that many of them consider this the best barber event in Europe. So it is with good reason that 50 barbers walk around with a tattoo of our logo! We look forward to the fourth edition with again a super educational and inspiring program and lots of fun!"
