Andis Company to Sponsor The Barber Academy Tour

This year, Andis Company will be an official sponsor of The Barber Academy Workshop Tour, a 10-city educational tour that aims to raise awareness and educate barbers on proper hygiene for infectious disease control. The four-hour class will highlight topics like sanitation and improving customer service and include a cutting demonstration using Andis professional barber tools. Barbers will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.

“We are proud to sponsor this event which is important to promoting safe habits throughout the barber community,” says Fred Koeller, vice president of marketing at Andis. “There are simple ways of preventing the spread of disease, and education is key. We hope attendance will be high.”

The tour will kick off in Chicago, IL on April 12 and make stops in several other cities before it wraps up in Los Angeles on June 21. Here are the cities and dates:
