Andis® Company is a leader in professional tools and education for the barber and beauty industry. The brand is excited to introduce two new barbers – Sabra Clark and Brea Retic – as the latest additions to its Global Education Team.
Now consisting of 44 educators across four continents, the Global Education Team could not be more thrilled to welcome the two new barbers – educators and barbershop owners, Sabra Clark and Brea Retic. “I’m thrilled to add such incredible barbering talent to our roster of global educators,” said Angie Perino, Andis® Global Education Manager. “Sabra and Brea fantastic advocates for barbering education locally. More importantly, they have a made a commitment to bettering the next generation of barbers and stylists. This applies no matter where they’re from or what stage in their career.”
Sabra was born and raised in San Diego and owns Straight to the Cut Barbershop. She has had a fascination for barbering ever since she was three years old. Sabra cut her own bangs off after tangling a comb in them! She received her barbering license in 2017.
In addition to being a barbershop owner, Sabra is the founder of the SoCal Lady Barber Expo. She is also the Lead Barber Educator for Bellus Academy from 2021-2022 and a six-time award-winning competitive barber. One of her goals is to start a non-profit organization to empower women and femme people in the barber industry. This wouls create a safe space for all to feel beautiful while also developing hair and craft. Now a part of the Andis team, Clark will be able to share her mission with a global audience.
Making a drastic career change in 2009, Brea moved to Atlanta to attend barbering school. Owner of the Brea J Cuts Studio and part of the SalonCentric It Takes a Pro Team, she has taken her calling in stride. Upon discovering her passion for barbering she realized it was the perfect field to enjoy flexibility, family time, and a better quality of life.
With a passion for helping others, Brea 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. Giving barbers the tools to be thoughtful and prepared in a sensorily-sensitive environment, A Different Cut offers as much peace of mind to barbers as it does to their clients. Retic also makes sure to offer her skills and knowledge as a resource to others in the barbering industry.
With her service, Brea will be a powerful addition to the Andis team, fostering encouragement and community while sharing her craft.
