Kim Hansen, Master Stylist
Owner of BLU Salon Apothecary
Kim Hansen, award winning salon owner and a Master Stylist
As a Master Stylist and Monrovia Salon Owner I have served the Monrovia, Pasadena, Arcadia, and La Canada area for over 30 years.
Many people have had negative experiences in the hair salon. They spend money on a hair services at a salon only to leave disappointed that the hairdresser didn’t listen or provide the services that they wanted. Success of any salon service lies in the ability of the hairstylist taking the time to communicate your desired outcome, explain the process, maintenance, and pricing.
My job is to provide you with excellent salon service, utilizing my experience and skill to guide you so we can achieve the best hairstyle for your lifestyle, hair texture and density, budget, and unique style.
Becoming a Master Stylist takes many years of education and hard work. You can feel confident that my skill as a Master Stylist will provide you with excellent results that will have friends, family, and co-workers giving you compliments on your hair. 85% of all first time clients return for services, and I have built a longtime loyal clientele because I work hard to make my clients happy.

Kim Hansen Accomplishments
I began my hairstylist career in Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive working under a world renowned hairstylist. He taught me not just about how to best service the community, but inspired a great work ethic within me. That work ethic and understanding of luxury services has provided me with success. At the age of 28 I opened my first salon in Arcadia California. After six years I opened my second salon, began growing my team, creating the Eclipse Salon and Spa brand of service. In 2009 we opened our premier salon, BLU Salon Aveda, in the Westfield Santa Shopping Mall. We created one of the best intern programs in the San Gabriel Valley, training many hairdressers assisting them to build success. BLU Salon Aveda was honored by Salon Today Magazine as one of the top ten salons in the country in customer service and growth. We we also received awards from the city of Arcadia, county of Los Angeles, and the state of California for our service to the community. In 2014 I decided to put family first, closing my salon, encouraging my team to take our brand of service to other salons in the Arcadia, Monrovia, and Pasadena Area. This allowed me to give 100% of my time and attention to my clients in my private studio. I’ve enjoyed serving on advisory counsels for Westfield Mall Group, Groupon, and the Professional Beauty Federation of California, and began TNL Salon Services, a salon business consulting/education firm in 2017, assisting aspiring small business owners realize their dream. It’s my greatest joy to provide a little joy to the community I serve.
