Andis® and Great Clips® Provide Exclusive Premiere Orlando Trip to Winners of Clipper Cutting Challenges


STURTEVANT, Wis. (May 2016) – Andis® Company and Great Clips® have announced the winners of two partnership competitions, The Great Clipper Event and the Clips & Tips Challenge, that promote the art of clipper cutting amongst cosmetology students and Great Clips employees.


Alissa Whiston and Brittany McKenna were the winners of the Clips & Tips Challenge, while Student Katherine Keller and her educator, Michelle Schoulties, of Empire Beauty School in Florence, Kentucky, took home the grand prize for The Great Clipper Event. All four winners receive an exclusive trip to Premiere Orlando from June 4-6, 2016 as guests of Andis. During the trip, the winners will have insider access to live demonstrations, classes and performances by Andis Educators, and gain exposure to the industry’s leading trends and cutting edge style.


“Our goal in partnering with Great Clips for these events is to provide participants with inspiration during the competition, then giving the winners insider industry access to our Andis Educators at Premiere Orlando,” said Aileen Nunez, Andis’ International Education Manager. “Andis is thrilled to give our winners this incredible trip to Premiere Orlando to shadow our educators and get the chance to participate in their workshops, and have one-on-one time with them.”


The Clips & Tips Challenge was exclusive to employees of Great Clips and required the contestants to upload a picture to social media with their favorite Andis tool. Two winners were randomly selected to win a free trip to Premiere Orlando.


The Great Clipper Event was designed as a free, in-school presentation to promote expert clipper cutting training. The winners were selected in a drawing from a pool of registered student participants. In addition to the Premiere Orlando trip, Andis gave away five clipper cutting kits valued at $700 each and Great Clips awarded 25 students with an iPad Mini 2 valued at $259 each.
