Andis Company has announced Daniel Montalvo and Dharmesh “Dodo” Hingorani as the latest additions to its global education team.
The team now consists of 45 educators across four continents.
Both Montalvo and Hingorani are barbershop owners, and have strong interests in passing on their knowledge to the next generation of creators in their home countries and on the world’s stage.
Montalvo is from San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and has over 15 years of barbering experience, owns three barbershops, a trendy micropigmentation and tattoo studio, eyelash studio and an academy for training in his hometown. He has also won multiple awards. His team of barbers has collaborated with rehab shelters to offer free haircuts to those in need. Further, he works with barbers throughout Mexico to put on free barbering events to bring continuing education and hands-on training to those who might not be able to afford to travel to major cities.
Hingorani, located in Mumbai, began his professional career in 2005. Recently, he began to organize free barbering workshops to empower others in the industry. Hingorani owns Zido Salon in Mumbai, India’s most populous city.
“I’m thrilled to add more international barbering talent to our roster of global educators,” says Angie Perino, Andis global education manager. “Both Dodo and Daniel are incredibly talented. They’re strong 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.”
