Andrea Hansen

Andrea Hansen has been in the industry for 14+ years and owns an eco-conscious commission salon in Reno, NV. She transformed her business to focus on her ideal clientele - transformative razor haircuts - and later opened her new commission salon in three months using the tools she learned as a student with Destroy the Hairdresser. 

Her passion is to help her students fulfill their true potential, find their joy in the industry, get out of debt, and create a lucrative career on their terms. Andrea utilizes the resources she learned as an artist, educator, and certified career coach, to help her students develop their dream careers by blending their spiritual nature with mindfulness and critical thinking skills.

Why did you decide to become a coach?

I became a coach to help stylists who are “seeking.” Seeking something more, seeking guidance, seeking support, seeking the how of things. How to build the clientele that brings your heart joy, how to create a budget, get out of debt and be financially successful, how to find the way to take their ideas and bring them to reality.

How would you describe your coaching style?

A little bit of “woo” mixed with empathy, guidance, and accountability.

What should someone expect when working with you?

I will be your biggest cheerleader while also holding you accountable to your goals. We will develop a strategy together based on where you are and how fast you want to get there.

What would you say to someone skeptical of hiring a coach?

If you don’t have the desire, it won’t work. If you are ready but don’t know how to start, then hire a coach.

What excites you about the Destroy The Hairdresser platform?

I love our platform because it offers resources that can be used for any type of learner and personality type out there. There isn’t a set curriculum; it’s designed to flow based on what the student wants to focus on and how ready they are to take the next step.

What books have influenced your coaching style?

The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor
Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman
Learned Optimism by Martin Seligman
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown.

What has been your biggest success story as a coach?

The success story close to my heart is my team at Kindred Hair Space. They have put their trust in me and our coaching platform and transformed their businesses behind the chair. Raising their prices, switching to gratuity-free and time-based scheduling helped them see their actual value as artists; their quality of work has improved, they are more relaxed, and they have time for normal things like breaks, lunch, and taking a breath. They are making more money and can focus on the type of service they want to do instead of hustling.
