Her Chair His Hair
Cassie Kurtz is a Master Barber, freelance Men's Groomer the founder of Her Chair His Hair, and owner of Beyond the Beard: Studio & Barbershop in New York City. Her passion for being a Barber led her to develop Her Chair His Hair - a non profit on a mission to support women in the industry by funding 0% interest and $0 cost micro-loans through Kiva.org.

Cassie has 7 years experience as a Master Barber and 10 years in the industry as a Makeup Artist specializing in Men's Grooming with a successful freelance career that she continues to this day. She has worked with many celebrities and fashion publications including L'Officiel Hommes Magazine, PAPER Magazine, Martin Sheen, Wale, and Noah Schnapp of Netflix's original series Stranger Things.

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 breakdown any antiquated notions of what it means to be a Barber while simultaneously helping women in the industry achieve their biggest dreams.
