Her Chair His Hair was founded by Master Barber and Men’s Groomer, Cassie Kurtz. Located in Brooklyn, NY, Cassie's passion for barbering led her to develop Her Chair His Hair - a website dedicated to men's grooming and all the ladies working hard to make them look their best.
▫️▫️Cassie has worked with many celebrities including Martin Sheen, Noah Schnapp, The Impractical Jokers, Duff Goldman from Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes,” Big Sean and many more. Prior to starting Her Chair His Hair, Cassie worked as a Master Barber in NYC, as well as a freelance Makeup Artist and Men's Groomer on set.
▫️▫️After encountering gender inequality in the Barber field on several occasions, Cassie felt she had an opportunity to find the most talented women around the world and share their stories far and wide. As she continues to grow #HerChairHisHair with her new team, Cassie’s primary goal is to officially make HCHH a legal non-profit, and offer both scholarships and micro-loans, to help women in the industry achieve their biggest dreams.
