Two new faces are joining the Andis Company family! The professional barbering brand recently announced Sabra Clark and Brea Retic as the newest additions to its Global Education Team, which currently consists of 44 educators across four continents. With their new roles, both artists are not only excited to bring their unique missions to the team, but also share their passion with the world while championing female barbers globally.
“I’m thrilled to add such incredible barbering talent to our roster of global educators,” said Angie Perino, Andis Global Education Manager. “Not only are Sabra and Brea fantastic advocates for barbering education locally, but, most importantly, they are committed to bettering the next generation of barbers and stylists, no matter where they’re from or what stage in their career.”
Both professionals couldn’t be more suited for their new role as Global Educators at Andis. Born and raised in San Diego, Clark has been fascinated with barbering ever since she was three years old and cut her bangs after getting a comb tangled in them. In 2017, she received her barbering license and now she currently owns Straight to the Cut Barbershop.
In addition to being a barbershop owner, Clark is the founder of the SoCal Lady Barber Expo, the Lead Barber Educator for Bellus Academy from 2021-2022, and a six-time award-winning competitive barber. She hopes to start a non-profit organization to empower women and femme people in the barber industry, creating a safe space for all to feel beautiful while also developing hair and craft. Now that she’s a part of the Andis team, she has the opportunity to share her mission with a global audience.
As for Retic, after making a drastic career change in 2009, she moved to Atlanta to attend barbering school. Upon discovering her passion for barbering, she realized it was the perfect field to enjoy flexibility, family time, and a better quality of life. Now, Retic is owner of the Brea J Cuts Studio and a part of the SalonCentric It Takes a Pro Team.
Passionate about helping others, Retic is a volunteer for A Different Cut, which helps barbers style young adults and children on the autism spectrum, who can find the sensory aspect of getting a haircut overwhelming. She also makes sure to offer her skills and knowledge as a resource to others in the barbering industry. With her service, Retic will no doubt make a powerful addition to the Andis team, fostering encouragement and community while sharing her craft.
