FREYA CERNY

BARBER / SHOP APPRENTICE

SPECIALTIES: RAZOR CUTS + FANTASY COLORS

Freya was born in Arizona, raised in Oakland, CA and moved to Colorado in 2014. With a lack of hairdressers willing to do the unconventional cuts and colors her and her friends wanted, she started doing it herself, and the rest is history.

Freya graduated from the Barbering Program at Emily Griffith in 2020 and attended razor cutting classes from Jayne Matthews of Edo Salon in San Francisco and at Pony Studios in Oakland.

Freya’s favorite hair services are creative and interesting razor cuts and colors for any gender, and her primary goal is to give each of her clients a hairstyle that helps them express their personal aesthetic and can styled easily with their natural texture.

When she’s not behind the chair, Freya loves collecting plants, tattoos, and vintage clothing and furniture.
