Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrea Adams.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I’ve been in the industry for nearly 20 years now. I guess you could say it’s just in my blood. I attended Graham Webb International Academy of Hair after high school. I then worked for Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and spa for many, many years. Along the way, I’ve been fortunate enough to have some great mentors and educators for support and guidance.
I myself have been an educator/trainer for many of those years. I’ve now landed at Hues on Hanover as an independent stylist where I use put years of expertise as a WellaColor Educator and EasiHairPro Trainer to work. I’m surrounded by people who support and lift each other up. It’s a place of positivity and growth.
I’m so excited to expand and grow alongside these driven, passionate, hardworking, talented people.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been an easy road, but anything worth having is worth fighting for. Trust your gut and listen to your heart.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in alternative hair additions (various extensions, wigs, toppers, etc.), blonding, and corrective color. I’m definitely known for my color specialty, impeccable foil placement, and mermaids!
I’m really proud of my education, past, and present, and following my heart to seek out joy in this industry. My knowledge and education set me apart just as much as the size of my heart.
How do you think about happiness?
Seeing the joy on someone’s face after a transformation (big or small) makes my heart so happy because you instantly see their confidence boosted. Knowing I helped make someone feel as beautiful on the outside as I know them to be on the inside brings me so much joy.
