AS PART OF THE LATEST ANDIS CREATOR SERIES PROJECT, ANDIS’ INTERNATIONAL ARTISTIC TEAM LEAD, KEVIN LUCHMUN, STUNS WITH A COLLECTION OF ROCKSTAR STYLES FEATURING THE NEWEST LOOKS
STURTEVANT, WI (August 2023) - Yesterday, Andis® Company’s International Artistic Lead, Kevin Luchmun, premiered his Retro Revival collection at BarberCon in Dallas, Texas. After months in development, Kevin’s newest styles debuted to incredible fanfare. Presenting six unique cuts to round out this collection, these styles are modeled on multiple genders and feature several hair textures and popping colors to complement the edgy elements of nostalgia.
As a part of the Andis Company, Luchmun crafted his looks with Andis professional tool line, with a strong reliance on the reSURGE Shaver and the reVITE Clipper. After 6 months of planning, Kevin’s looks are not only emblematic of his incredible skill but of the elite-level performance of Andis products. As Andis’ International Artistic Lead, Kevin viewed this as an opportunity to not only drive innovation in the styling sphere but to demonstrate the versatility of Andis’ cordless lineup of clippers, trimmers, shavers and accessories.
“My goal here was to take the inspiration that’s constantly available to us from fashion to social media, to our day-to-day lives and to create a collection that would totally cut through that noise. But, rather than building on contemporary trends, it was my intention to reinvent retro and older styles from the ground up. With the help of my incredible creative team and my Andis partnership, I feel that this collection is the start of a complete reset for my own work and the barbering industry as a whole,” said Luchman.
As both barber and creative director, Luchmun worked closely with a team of stylists to craft clothing profiles that were able to complement the hair as much as the hair complemented the clothes. Directing his videography team with incredible precision, each angle of these cuts has been artfully captured in exceptional detail. In combination with Kevin’s own photography, this collection sets a new standard for barbering innovation.
The six Retro Revival looks featured in this new collection were built to highlight the texture and color of each model’s hair, creating custom but easily replicable looks. The styles include:
- Sculpted Tapered Afro
This style combines the natural volume and texture of an afro with a precise and gradual taper on the sides and back. The hair is carefully shaped and sculpted to maintain a rounded silhouette, while the low taper provides a clean and polished look. This creates a harmonious balance between the shape's fullness and the well-defined lines of a taper, resulting in a stylish and sophisticated look.
- Wave Fusion Mullet
A modern Mullet hairstyle with blonde hair, styled with its natural wavy texture and enhanced by a taper fade on the sides. This trendy and versatile look has the retro appeal of the mullet with a contemporary twist.
- Sharp Edge Undercut Bob
This style is a precision bob hairstyle with an undercut at the back. This edgy and modern look combines the sleekness of a classic bob with a bold twist. The precision bob frames the face with clean lines and a sharply defined fringe. At the back, the undercut is incorporated to remove weight and create movement throughout the shape.
- Tender Flow Mullet
This style is a soft, textured mullet hairstyle that gives a gentler look by maintaining length while still removing weight around the parietal ridge. The underneath is connected to the top with soft waves and natural texture.
- 90s Retro Rise
This style is a high-top hairstyle with a tapered fade that pays homage to the iconic trends of the 90s. This classic yet contemporary hairstyle features a voluminous and structured high top, reminiscent of bold and gravity-defying vintage styles, embracing nostalgia while maintaining a fresh and fashionable aesthetic.
- Rugged Edge
This Rugged Edge style combines elements of shorter internal lengths with textured layers and longer fringe for added flair. Using clippers to create texture through slide cutting, the layers play a significant role in adding dimension and movement to the style.
Videos and photographs of Andis’ Retro Revival collection feat. Kevin Luchmun are available to view on the Creator Series Section of the Andis website. To keep up to date with Kevin’s work follow him on Instagram. To learn more about Andis® Company, follow them on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

BRAND’S NEWEST INSTALLMENT BRINGS FOCUS TO KANSAS CITY ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS STRUGGLING PARENTS FIND FINANCIAL STABILITY THROUGH PET GROOMING
STURTEVANT, WI (October 2022) — Andis® Company, the leading barbering, styling and animal grooming tools brand dedicated to empowering professionals and consumers to create their way, is proud to announce the next installment of its Creator Series. Launching today, the latest episode, focuses on Pawsperity — a Kansas City 501c3 nonprofit organization that empowers parents to overcome barriers to stable employment and find meaningful work in high-demand pet-related trades, from pet grooming to dog daycare and dog training.
“When the request for help with tools from Pawsperity hit my inbox back in 2015, I knew this program was going to be different and that we had to get involved immediately. Given the impact they’ve had in turning people’s lives around, we’re incredibly proud to support their mission through the Andis Foundation and, now, this Creator Series Original,” said Matt K. Andis, co-CEO Andis Company.
Grooming is an in-demand profession in which individuals with barriers to stable employment – including domestic violence, addiction, criminal records and incomplete education – can find meaningful employment. Pawsperity’s education-based approach empowers single parents in poverty by equipping them with valuable skills, but it also ensures that they focus on improving their family’s future through parenting and budgeting classes, mental health support, life skills courses, and other needed medical services by partnering with many local organizations.
“Create your way. That’s exactly what we’re trying to do for our students. Come in, learn how to groom dogs. They can open their own businesses, they can go work for somebody else, but most importantly, once they have that financial backing, they can create that path for their life,” said Natasha Kirsch, Founding CEO of Pawsperity. “Our students are creating financial stability for their families. They’re creating a new cycle for their kids. Creating a whole new path.”
Formally known as, The Grooming Project, the organization underwent a massive physical expansion and rebranded itself to “Pawsperity.” When the organization opens its 16,000-square-foot Kansas City facility in late 2022, it is expected to become the nation’s largest dog grooming school. Learn more about this groundbreaking organization at www.pawsperity.org.
"Working with The Grooming Project, now Pawsperity, is the perfect example of the transformative power of grooming. They teach the business and art of pet grooming to single parents, helping them to become self-reliant and create an entirely new future for their families,” said Angie Vlasaty Peterson, Andis Company’s Vice President of Marketing. "Through our ongoing financial support from the Andis Foundation and this Creator Series Original feature, we want to illustrate to everyone that dog grooming can be literally life-changing. We know that other professional groomers and pet parents are going to be inspired by these students and their stories of hope.”

This enables the stylist or barber to make changes between a Taper blade and Fade blade quickly and easily for added efficiency and convenience. The reVITE also has a large, textured grip that enhances comfort to prevent slipping, a tapered body to improve ergonomics for all hand sizes as well as a new high-speed rotary motor to shape and sculpt. The reVITE features 2 hours of non-stop run time while the LED battery status indicator turns from blue to red when battery level is below 10%.
Black reVITE Clipper
The black reVITE features a Fade blade which adjusts from size 00000-000 for ulta-close cutting, and an unbreakable aluminum housing for years of dependable use. This reVITE is great for clipper-over-comb technique, bald fading and freehand work.
Gray reVITE Clipper
The gray reVITE features a Taper blade which adjusts from size 000-1 for all-around haircutting. However, this version is designed for those who prefer to create with an ultra-lightweight clipper and features a composite housing. This combination of light weight and slim shape is perfect for smaller hands.
"The reVITE clipper is a sleek, tool with endless versatility that meets all of my needs,” says Angie Perino, Andis Company Global Education Manager and cosmetologist. “Its powerful cutting performance and ergonomic design allows me to feel empowered to create any look — I can quickly swap the Fade blade out for the Taper blade in a matter of seconds. Plus, the precision of the reVITE provides a sharp edge, giving the modern classic look, a perfect finish.”
Andis Company is also currently celebrating its centennial year — and the reVITE Clippers are the first Andis professional clippers to use the new visual brand language since its recent rebranding.

One of Andis’ leading Global Educators and 2022 NAHA Educator of the Year, John uses his influence to inspire creativity among professionals and this new collaboration, featuring three limited-edition tools, highlights his artistry and encourages others to create their way.
“Kicking off our Creative Collab Series with John and his Popular Nobody brand is incredibly exciting. Andis is always looking to inspire and encourage others to create their way, so when we spoke with John about the idea of creating a custom clipper with a common vision to support a great cause, we were excited to bring it to life,” said Angie Vlasaty Peterson, Andis VP of Marketing. “We think people will really love what we’ve done with John and B. Clark Customs.”
Branded with the signature Popular Nobody “Atlas” Gorilla logo and a design based on a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted colorway by B. Clark Customs™, this special-edition release includes custom versions of the Master® Cordless Li Clipper, the Cordless Envy® Li Clipper, and the Slimline® Pro Li Trimmer. Each tool for this collaboration was chosen by John with professional creators in mind. It combines some of Andis' best-selling tools with the imagination and style of the Popular Nobody brand wrapped using fresh, modern colors, and a surprise black light glow design. Tools in the collection include:
Master Cordless Lithium-Ion Clipper:
Andis Company’s most popular professional clipper, The Master Cordless, offers high-speed power, constant speed technology, and an adjustable blade for unbeatable precision that make it perfect for skin-tight fades and tapers. With a 90-minute cordless runtime and a durable aluminum housing, the Master Cordless Clipper delivers premier-quality cuts with the aesthetic edge of Popular Nobody style.
Cordless Envy Li Adjustable Blade Clipper:
With 2 hours of cordless runtime on a 90-minute charge, the super lightweight Cordless Envy Adjustable Blade Clipper is designed with the craft in mind. The lightweight design is ideal for smaller hands and for comfortable all-day use. Decked in a unique Popular Nobody colorway, this clipper embodies creative freedom.
Slimline Pro Li T-Blade Trimmer
A sleek, lightweight profile and extra-sharp carbon-steel T-blade mean this trimmer was built for ultra-close, precision detailing.

Andis will also be making a matching grant of $10,000 through its Andis Foundation to support the group’s work.

As an Andis Global Educator, I have seen how teaching others to be successful makes a difference. This creative collab with Andis is a great expression of artistry and giving back and A Change Is Coming is the perfect partner to benefit from this project.”
