About The Event

Cosmetology & Barber Expo is the ONE & ONLY cosmetology & barber expo in all of Central California. Central California is currently the fastest growing region in California with a population of 6.5 million people.

Cosmetology & Barber Expo of Central California will be held February 23-24, 2019 at the Big Fresno Fair & Convention Center located in the heart of Central California, Fresno Ca.

In 2018 the Cosmetology & Barber Expo of Central California was born. Licensed professionals, students, aspiring individuals, and industry consumers & fanatics all came together to experience a first time event at the Big Fresno Fair in Fresno that featured on stage seminars, showcases, vendors, entertainment, competitions including a scholarship giveaway to a high school student who aspires to be in the cosmetology & barbering industry.

This year the event will feature the central valley Barber Battle #8 event with over 200 barbers competing on stage plus the return of the popular lash battle. We will also introduce new battles: Hair Stylist Battle, Makeup Battle, Braid Battle & Nail Battle. Already confirmed for the years event are the master barbers:
