For the exciting conclusion of its Andis Clipper Ace Challenge and Student Clipper Rising Star contests, Andis Company took to the stage at Premiere Orlando to unveil the winners.

Andis created the Clipper Ace Challenge to identify and recognize hair professionals with the potential to join its team of educators, while the student contest was designed to help support an individual embarking on a new career in the barber and beauty industry.

He will also receive a collection of professional Andis tools. Our Andis Clipper Rising Star student winner, Paul Laurie, from Erie 1 BOCES in West Seneca, NY received a $2,000 scholarship and an assortment of product, and his school was also a winner taking home $1,200 in product to support the education of their students.”

Other professional finalists in the Andis contest were: Jasmine Birt of Déjà vu Hair and Nail Lounge in Elmhurst, IL; Seth Davis owner of Urban Fellow Barbershop in Warwick, RI; and Georgia Tournai owner of City Barbershop in Brush, CO.
