Cedric's Barber Battle is a reality competition series that sets out to capture the cultures that exists in barbering communities across the country.

Premise[]

Each week, the series will visit different barbershops in cities including: Los Angeles, Queens, Harlem and Austin where the best barbers will go head-to-head in a hilariously, unfiltered, no-holds-barred arena. Creating hair sculptures that feature elaborate designs ranging from images of a person's face to grand cityscapes, the barbers will use nothing more than clippers and a few coloring tools to create intricate works of art that are both imaginative and local-centric.

Trivia[]
