Western Beauty Institute was well-represented again at this year’s Barristar competition. One barber team and seven cosmetology teams went to this year’s event in Irvine, California  and they did not disappoint. Panorama City freshman student Brenda Gutierrez  brought home a trophy for her 2nd place finish in Best Hair. Brenda’s team also took the plaque for Best Color. Teams were allowed 30 minutes to create their models’ hair style, 30 minutes to apply makeup, and another 30 minutes to create the models’ nail design.

WBI sends its top students to compete in local and national events every year. Students from each campus are encouraged to participate to put their skills to the test against tough competition. This provides valuable experience as well as another opportunity to learn and improve.
