The Groomers Rising Star is a new and exciting competition that gives grooming students across the UK a chance to shine!

It's simple to enter. All you need to do is send us a picture of a groom that you have completed recently, as well as a short paragraph explaining why you deserve to be the Groomers Rising Star. 

We have some incredible prizes up for grabs. Your photos will be displayed on our website and will be judged by the Groomers Team, our customers, and Amy Manser. The winner will be announced on the 1st March 2020, as well as a second and third place. 

So, what do you win?

Apart from being crowned the Groomers Rising Star for 2020, you will bag yourself some serious swag! 

First place will win a range of Andis and Groomers goodies, including a training day with Amy Manser, two time of Groomer of the Year. You will also get a chance to create a blog for our Student Hub, describing what life is like as a student and what your future grooming goals are.
