Andrea Birst

aka Boss Lady

Details:  I spend every day growing and developing our team and our company.  I work hard to ensure that we provide exclusive experiences for our guests and that I provide a meaningful and purposeful work life for my staff.

Why I chose the industry:
I originally chose this industry in high school because I was a young girl who loved to play with hair.  I now choose to stay in this industry because it’s the most rewarding industry to be a part of!  We have the power to touch and impact lives every day! And I now have the privilege everyday to be an impactful leader for our team!

What inspires me:
I find inspiration in many things. I seek to be inspired daily. But with out a doubt my team inspires.  They are all unique and I learn from them every single day. They are a powerful team and they make my work life worth every minute!

My family inspires me! I am blessed with 3 beautiful children’s and a husband who is perfect for me and keeps me under control through this crazy life! I am grateful that I grew up in a home and with parents who taught me love and the most important life lessons. And I get to work with my beautiful, life loving, passionate sister everyday! Honestly, what more could a girl ask for?!

And of course most importantly I am inspired by the love of Jesus!  I need his strength and guidance daily to conquer each week!

Life motto:  I probably would be known as a risk taker. And I always say- you only live one life! I’m not afraid of making a mistake.  You live and you learn!  I work hard.  Balancing work life and home life is always a focus of mine. I try to lead with a servant heart. I truly believe the more you give the more you grow!

Why did you choose a career in beauty?
Growing up, my grandmother had a salon room in her basement and that is where you would find me. All of my Barbie’s and dolls had haircuts and regular visits to the salon. So, after high school while trying to figure out my career path, I thought back and knew I would like to be a cosmetologist!

What inspires you?
I am inspired by other artists, and my team daily.

Details:  Cosmetologist; KMS IQ Cutting Certified, Goldwell Master Colorist, Deva Curl Certified, Curl Enhancements. Xtreme Lash Extensions. Manicure/Pedicurist. Body Waxing.

Why did you choose a career in beauty?
I never intended on being a cosmetologist; I wanted to be an international flight attendant, but I was not old enough. I went to hair school and it really fit me. I felt like I belonged and really enjoyed it. Here I am 10 years later loving every minute.

What inspires you?
What is inspiring to me is the endless possibilities of my career. I love when a guest brings me a picture of their dream hair and I get to make that a reality for them. I’m inspired every time a guest walks away from the salon feeling good about themselves. To see a busy mom in love with her easy to style hair or a teenager feeling more confident after a styling lesson is so wonderful. It’s all those little things that inspire me on a daily basis.

Life Motto:  Prepare like you will live to be 90, live like you will die tomorrow.

Why did you choose a career in beauty?
Since I was very young I was always playing with mine and my sister’s hair and as I got older I enjoyed it even more. Going to the salon to get my hair cut was always something I looked forward to and just knew that’s what I wanted to do.

What inspires you?
My girls inspire me. Paysen, my oldest daughter, always sees the best in everything and everyone. She inspires me to be a better person and be the best mom I can be.

She encourages us to travel for advanced education, including opportunities such as doing hair and makeup for the Miss America Pageant. How cool is that!?

Why did you choose a career in beauty?
My goal every single day is to make my guests feel like they have all the confidence in the world! So often, people have a preconceived idea of what they should look like or what they should change about themselves and that is NOT how it should be!! Everyone should feel beautiful and confident and I am so happy I get to be a part of that for each of my guests!

What inspires you?
My boyfriend inspires me; he always pushes me to work harder and be better. My team also inspires me by encouraging me, making the hard days better, and I always know my team has my back.

And lets face it, I still get to play counselor on the daily 🙂

Why did you choose a career in beauty?
Honestly, life has a funny way of working out- Most stylists were cutting their babies hair when they were 5 and dreaming of being a hairstylist. That wasn’t the case for me. I always knew I wanted to help people, change lives, make an impact- I just didn’t know how I was going to do that. Fast Forward to today- a career in the beauty industry that I am passionate about and love. It’s so much more than “doing hair” to me. I love connecting with people and making an impact on their life.

What inspires you?
The world. I am an avid traveler and its such a joy of mine to experience other cultures and ways of life. I want to live a life of adventure and see and experience all I can.

Life Motto:  I will live a life full of adventure. I will travel often, never stop learning, and always take responsibility for my actions. I will create sunshine when I can’t find it and I will fill my life with love, grace, and fun.
