ANDI HARDY

CEO / Owner

My hair journey began in 1996 and it’s never stopped evolving. When I started Altruist, I knew the salon would be based on two things: passion and education. No matter what I do, I’m in constant learning mode–I crave new knowledge and love curating skills. With hair as my identity and education as my mission, Altruist was purposefully created as a salon centered on an atmosphere full of mentors who grow, train, and support new stylists. 

Altruist is a bit of a reflection of me and my own passions. I thrive on continued education and aim to surround myself with stylists who share the same thirst for knowledge and drive for teaching others. Unsurprisingly, our foundational mantra is “we rise by lifting others”–and it’s something we truly abide by. 

For me, it’s all about forming and deepening relationships–whether it’s with my family, my coworkers, or my clients. I might be the owner, but that doesn’t mean I’ve ever stepped out of the styling world. I love clients who are decisive, direct, and willing to embrace change with an open mind. If you’re looking for beautiful results, a salon full of talent, and a lot of laughs along the way, I have just the chair for you.
