Answered by: Brenden Vengoa

How did you get into the barber business? I first learnt how to cut by practising on my own hair after watching tutorials on YouTube at 16. Then moved on to cut hair out of my garage to further my skills. Started an apprenticeship at 20 and six years later, opened my own barber/cafe alongside my younger brother.

What's your signature haircut? My signature would be short fades but my favourite style would be the weighted/heavy part with medium-long length on top, textured and styled into a nice pompadour. Classic look.

What will make you the winner at the Barber Wars? My versatility. I believe a barber has to be versatile in what they do to keep up with today's modern and classic trends. I believe you need the ability to use all types of tools and equipment in today's era.

Which bands/artists are you keen to catch at Meatstock? All of them. They all have their own unique talents and to be honest, I haven't heard any live so I can't wait to see what entertainment they all bring.

If you could cut/style the hair of any band/artist playing at Meatstock who would it be and what would you give them? The Beards — the name says it all. Would love to trim and re-shape the beards of those men. Cut the long hair off and give them the classic pompadour look.

What else are you looking forward to at Meatstock? Meeting the other top 14 finalists, being within their presence, battling against them and learning from all their talents and knowledge they have to give. Can't wait to get around and try all the varieties of meat and meet everyone involved.
