About the Owner
Freddy Barrera, the founder of Freddy’s Barbershop, always knew he wanted to be a barber. Born and raised in Southern Los Angeles, getting a haircut regularly was a luxury, so instead of asking his parents to pay for haircuts, he decided to learn how to cut hair on his own. He failed miserably at his first hair cut attempt and left his uncle with a bald spot on the top of his head, but Freddy never gave up. This became Freddy’s motto…..’Never give up’ and so came the creation of Freddy’s Barbershop.
After moving his family to Denver with no money in his pocket, a one bedroom apartment for his family of four and a dream, Freddy realized he missed the days of being passionate about something, so he made a dream come true by starting a career that wouldn’t feel like work at all. After living a life of hard knocks and years of soul searching, he turned his dream into a reality by opening Freddy’s Barbershop in 2009. Now with two locations going strong, Freddy’s mission is to prove that the world can be yours and the profession of barbering is what you make it by changing lives one haircut at a time.
