Andy Henson – Born in Abilene TX, Andy grew up on Family Ranch and Ben Richey Boys Ranch until graduation from Albany JR SR High School. Shaping hats started when he wanted to tune up his houseparent’s cowboy hat in 2006 before heading to the Fort Worth Stock Show. In 2009 Andy entered the cowboy and western industry by working at 5D Custom Hats and Leather while going to school at Abilene Christian University. The art of shaping hats was so intriguing to him that it quickly became the career that Andy wanted to pursue. Although Andy has only been at the Best Hat Store location since July of 2020, he has been one of the hat shapers at the Best Hat Store Booth during the NFR in Las Vegas since 2014 and previously worked at 5D, Cavenders, and Cody’s Cowboy Hats in Idaho.
