Hans Fróði Hansen (born 24 August 1975 in Leirvík, Faroe Islands) is a retired football player and now manager from the Faroe Islands, who had started a second career as fashion and beauty advisor under the name Hans F. Hansen of Scandinavia. His main product line was called Below Your Belt[1] and was a series of product intended for pubic hair removal.

Hans Fróði played in Norway, Iceland and for several Faroese clubs,[2] largely in central defence. He was capped 26 times for the Faroe Islands.[3] On 5 June 1999, he scored his only goal for his country. In a qualification match for Euro 2000 in Toftir, he scored a last minute equaliser against Scotland (1-1).[4] He later described this as the finest moment of his footballing career.

He made his international debut in a 0-1 away defeat to Bosnia in Sarajevo on 19 August 1998 and played his last game for the Faroes in a 1-3 home defeat against Lithuania on 10 September 2003 in Toftir.

In 2006, he was manager for LÍF Leirvík.

After some of Hans Fróði's ambitious international business projects failed, he decided to resume his career in Faroese football. In 2013, he took over as manager of the top division side TB Tvøroyri.[5][6] He was TB Tvøroyri's manager until 23 July 2013.[7]
