Kim’s exposure to the salon industry is unique, because she has a view that not many have. She has knowledge of: manufacturers and education, salons succeeding to the highest levels, salons failing, individual success and failure, understanding how various business models succeed and fail.

Many of us don’t get out of our own little square footage. Kim’s perspective and analytical mind is an asset to us all, booth renters, salon owners, suite owners, manufacturers, educators, anyone trying to find their way.

Kim has done and seen it all! Her assessment of the salon/spa industry is on point, and what is necessary to move us forward. She will inspire you, and offer you you step by step directions to your goals. Don’t miss out! Get on Board!

The salon industry is an industry, a huge and powerful business that is misunderstood by the public and by its own professionals.
It’s people like Kim Hansen that blaze the trail with leadership and vision to help salon professionals navigate it and succeed in it.

Kim is a raving fan of our industry and of what it needs to be. Allow her to help you become a raging fan of your business, self, and goals.

Gary Call

Head Coach KIN North America

Looking at the complete package is vital when selecting a business coach and in the Salon Industry we need to be even more careful – everything is so personal and connected to an individual. Kim Hansen brings more skill to the table than I have seen from any other source. She has personal experience in every facet of management, artistic and technical ability as well as the insight to empathize with salon staff in a way that helps owners see how change will be understood when it is presented to them.

The biggest challenge we face every day is managing change and communicating it to our teams and Kim is a master of that dialogue. Beyond setting realistic standards and helping you create a plan to implement them you will find that you have quickly developed an intimate friendship based on mutual respect and trust.

You’ll look forward to your time with Kim and guard it carefully, energized by the results you’re able to create together and loving the leader she is helping you become. Kim Hansen is partner in every sense of the word regardless of the size of your project!
