The Team

Freedom Salon was established in 2016 after Hunter Barnes relocated to Carolina Beach from  Washington D.C. Hunter's passion for hair and connecting with his clientele is what drove him to open the doors to his own salon. The vision for Freedom Salon came to Hunter when he envisioned a place where artistry is embraced while encouraged by fellow artists and patrons. Freedom Salon's philosophy is whether you're in the chair or behind the chair everyone should have the freedom to express him or her self however they want, while looking good doing it. Freedom Salon, a salon for the artist.


Hunter Barnes


Hunter Barnes established Freedom Salon when he saw the need for a salon that connected the artist with the client. As an established stylist hailing from Washington D.C., Hunter brings almost a decade of experience directly from our nation's capital. Prior to moving to North Carolina in 2016 Hunter was voted one of the top three hair stylist, two years in a row, according to Best of D.C., Washington City Paper. Hunter's experience and expertise in working with politicians, government officials, and celebrities solidifies his skill level within the hair industry. Hunter relocated to North Carolina, Carolina Beach, for the purpose of living a life he felt was worth living in an area he felt he belonged.

This Michigan native began her path to great hair in 2011. After completing an apprenticeship, she went on to really honing her newfound skill set. In 2015, she decided to spread her wings. During this time she fell in love with the culture and easy going lifestyle here in Wilmington. Jasmine’s positive attitude and her dedication to learning hair comes from the heart.
