Shawn Arny


Shawn Arny gave his first haircut to his best friend when he was only 15 years old. It didn’t turn out quite how he imagined but this event would prove to foreshadow his future career of becoming a barber. A little encouragement was necessary though. After talking with a few friends he decided to pursue his vision and enroll at Tri-City Barber College.

“Barbering was a path I had often thought about, but kept putting off.” Studying under the direction of Steve Kennedy gave him the knowledge and confidence to achieve his goal. Shawn’s attention to detail and precision shear work makes him a welcome addition to Beards & Beers.

He considers himself a true tonsorial artist, merging the old school traditions of the past and learning new techniques to stay up to date with current trends. “One of the things I love about barbering is that I get to help people feel good about themselves. Getting a haircut is instant gratification, for both the client and myself."
