Family
owned
Since 1922

Hard to believe, but it’s been more than 100 years since Mathew Andis created the first generation of today’s Master Clipper in the basement of his home in Racine, Wisconsin. Four generations later, we’ve remained family owned and operated. And we’re proud to work alongside a team dedicated to the Andis legacy in a state-of-the-art facility located just a short drive from where it all began. How we got here wasn’t easy, but it was very simple: if it isn’t the best, we don’t make it. That unwavering commitment to relentless innovation and quality remains as true today as it was a century ago. And if we have any say in the matter, it’ll remain just as true a century from today.

Although our community has grown over the last century, we are family-owned, driven by quality and innovation. And still located just a short drive away from where it all began.

The Grooming Project

Inspiration and hope. It is what our partners at The Grooming Project are all about. This innovative, Kansas City-based nonprofit organization works to lift single-parent families out of poverty through education and job training in the art of pet grooming. Not only do they impart grooming knowledge but they also offer the additional support services so vital in breaking the cycle of poverty – from housing and transportation to counseling and legal aid.

The Conscious Kid

We are a supporter of The Conscious Kid, a nonprofit organization dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth. We help distribute kids’ books to barbershops across the U.S. as a way to help educate and disrupt racism in children.
