Shari Baber - owner & Master Stylist


In addition to owning Cut-N-Up & Co., Shari is a cosmetology instructor, founder of Boise Soul Food Festival and Brown Like Me.  She is also a board member of the Idaho Women’s Business Center, Idaho Black Community Alliance and a Commissioner for Boise City Parks and Recreation.

Arriving in Boise 28 years ago, Shari came with the mission of creating Boise’s first and finest salon for ethnic hair. Over time her salon became a meeting place for people in the valley.

While providing services for Black and biracial children adopted into mixed race families, the Salon became a natural place for those members of the community to gather together. Eventually Brown Like Me grew out of that natural gathering.

Whether you are looking for a simple cut or need something that takes years of practice to master, Shari has the experience and expertise to create the hairstyle of your dreams.
