Andis takes to the stage at Barber Connect as main event sponsor!

Learn from the Andis International team for inspiration and education to ‘CREATE YOUR WAY’ 

As a world-leading manufacturer of barbering and grooming tools, Andis’ recent global rebrand has not only repositioned the company across every aspect of its products, culture and value proposition to the industry, and professionals at every stage of their career, it has redefined expectations.  

Now, more than simply choosing Andis for its world-class tools, the company provides an unrivalled depth of resource spanning education, support and mentoring. From people entering the profession to the most seasoned professionals, Andis’ offering has been tailored to exceed the needs of every barber, backed with leading-edge tools and accessories. 

A key part of Andis’ offering is their global education team and training resources – most notably with the launch of their new virtual education website. Spearheaded by Global Education Manager Angie Perino, some of the industry’s most renowned professionals including International Artistic Team Lead Kevin Luchmun, North American Artistic Team Lead Kenny Duncan and UK Education Team Lead Baldy, are inspiring international barbers with virtual education, stage presentations, international show appearances, creative collections and cutting techniques using Andis tools.

On 12-13 June, Andis takes this interaction to new levels as over 30 Andis educators, ambassadors and speakers descend on the Telford International Conference Centre and take to the main stage at Barber Connect. As one of the industry’s most inspirational gatherings of barbers from the UK and beyond, over 5,000 visitors can expect a never-seen-before ensemble of some of the world’s most creative barbering and men’s grooming talents.  

Get set for inspiration + education 

With nine segments being showcased over the 2-day event, the Andis team will present an eclectic mix of international trends and cutting techniques. From North American to Australian and UK Trends, to visual presentation of the latest Fluid Vol.3 collection and Andis Freestyle Design, visitors can expect to be immersed in an array of creative content on the Andis Creator Stage. Additional segments include Tom Chapman, founder of the Lions Barber Collective focussing on Mental Health Awareness and Mike Taylor Education talking barber training and apprenticeships.          

“We’re flying our amazing team of educators from all corners of the world to Telford to inform, inspire and educate barbers at Barber Connect,” says Angie Perino. “Never before has Andis brought together so many talented barbers together in one place for what’s sure to be a not-to-be-missed experience. We’re leading on education and creativity and, of course, we’ll be showcasing the very latest Andis tools that empower barbers to exceed their creative potential and forge their own creative identity in this amazing industry. We’re so thrilled to be there and can’t wait to see you all!”
