Wahl Education and Artistic Team Welcomes Three New Members

The Wahl Education and Artistic Team (WEAT) announced, last week, the selection of three new members: John Carmona, Antonino Lombardi and Corina Reyes.

WEAT is comprised of 17 highly trained and technologically advanced artists who can educate and train at any skill level. Their goal is to provide students and licensed hair professionals with clipper education. They believe that education is closely tied to success.

To select the three latest member, Wahl conducted a stringent vetting process, ultimately choosing them from the Wahl Professional’s Select Barber Program. Considered the best of the best, the WEAT barbers and stylists must be relentless in their passionate pursuit as both artists and ambassadors for Wahl Professional. WEAT focuses on diverse clipper techniques ranging from precision clipper cutting to creative clipper styling—for all genders, races and hair textures.

“John Carmona, Antonino Lombardi and Corina Reyes were selected for their ability to be excellent communicators, their amazing pro ciency with the clippers and their talents with longer cutting and styling techniques.” said Laura VanderMoere, global director of education, Professional, Wahl Clipper Corporation.

“I was told once that a true educator wants others to succeed so bad that he will be willing to pass on knowledge to ultimately make the student better than himself. That idea is what makes me so excited to be part of this team,” says Carmona.

Says barber Corina Reyes, “It’s been a life-long dream of mine to be a WEAT member. I’m most excited to share my techniques and to be an inspiration to ladies all over the world.”

“This team is so inspiring in their ability to share knowledge with others about their craft, expand students’ base skillset, re ne and sharpen their existing skills and contribute to their growth and development,” adds Lombardi. “I’m excited to be part of this team. It’s an honor to work among and learn from such a talented group.”
