About Us

Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, Stroked Ego is the one-stop shop for men's fashion and accessories.
"A haircut is not something you want from a factory line. It should always be created to each individual's unique features and style, creating your one of a kind look. We live in an age where men get professionally groomed for confidence on an every day basis. You take off your shoes, but you will never take off your haircut. So when you get your haircut, make sure it has your name on it." Jay R Fresher



At the end of the day, you can visit someone who wants you in and out of his chair Or, you can go to a guy who takes pride in every flick of the clippers; a guy who checks his work from every angle; a guy who can give you a consistent haircut every time as easily as he can can give you a look that is all your own. That guy is Fresher. That’s my guy. Satil Reflection. Perfect mix of professionalism and creativity. Not just a haircut, this is your style. Definitely five out of five.

I’ve been getting my haircut from Jay ever since I moved to Ottawa – about 5 years ago. Throughout those 5 years, Jay has mastered his skill, and solidified the fact that he is, inarguably, one of the best barbers in the city. Everytime you sit in Jay’s chair, you know he’s going to take his time, and give you the perfect haircut. I’ve gone to shops in the past, where you’d only be in the chair for 15 minutes. This isn’t the case with Jay – his attention to detail, and obsession with perfection is visible in his work. Aside from his work, he’s a genuinely great guy. By sitting in his chair, I’ll guarantee you’ll be laughing, and having good conversation the whole time. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend seeing Jay for your next cut. You wont regret it.

Jay’s ongoing commitment to his clients and professional progression is what keeps me coming back to Fresher Studios. Jay is always attentive, punctual, and truly invested in every aspect of customer care. In a city where there is seemingly a barber shop on every corner, I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.
