About Anddy Barnes

Founder, ATAB Academy

Wassup! I'm Anddy, and I started ATAB Academy because my barbershop had become very profitable, and other cosmetology business owners were always asking questions like:

  • How do you keep your schedule booked?
  • What's your secret to keep customers coming back over and over?
  • Or, how did you get into product development?

The questions went on and on.

The thing is...I enjoy answering the questions and helping others in the industry to be successful, so I decided to organize everything into a program, and ATAB Academy was born.

I've been a grooming specialist for the last 10+ years where I've specialized in barbering and esthetician services for men. Over my stint in the grooming business, I've learned a lot about financial management, business strategy, scheduling, customer service, legal, real estate, and more.

I created ATAB Academy as a place to share what I've learned over the years to help others experience an above average grooming career like I have.
