The Family Behind Freebird

We looked all over the city of Boulder and decided that University Hill was the place for Freebird Beauty Shop.  In part because we could walk to work and also there was not a salon in this area…only barber shops that are mostly serving men.  We are lucky enough to raise our family here!  We love our neighborhood and all it has to offer.  We hope Freebird Beauty Shop can be a positive safe space for the artists that are part of our team and for our community too.  It has been our dream to help bring some heart and business back to University Hill.  Bryan is a CU Alumni and Sarah has been in the beauty industry for over 15 years.  We take pride in seeing our neighborhood grow and change in a very positive way for all!

With Love,

The Vida Family


Mission Statement


Freebird Beauty Shop is a hair salon that focuses on intentional styling, inclusive environment, and the encouragement of self care above all else.  We believe that beauty exists in every person and that beautifying services should be designed to reinforce that beauty in a way that feels authentic and comfortable.

Core Values

Community:   Engaging with our community and creating space for everyone to thrive is imperative.  We partner with local businesses and organizations for this very reason.  After all, life is so much better when the whole damn class is invited in to the party don't you think?

Education: The only constant in this world is change and the only way to embrace that fact is through education and therefore personal growth.  The more you know, the more you grow.

Creativity:  A little imagination can take you anywhere.  It's a lifestyle choice and everyone has the power. 

Kindness:   In all things,  we must always BE KIND.

Beauty: When we feel good, we look good and at the end of the day that's what beauty really is:  the total expression of who we are when our souls feel good.
