Arriving in Boise 28 years ago, Shari came with the mission of creating Boise’s first & finest salon for ethnic hair. Over time her salon became a meeting place for people in the valley. Since a lot of adopted African American or biracial children are 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 that was occuring.

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 take your hair & create your dreams.
