The Interview

  • Hey Marc Cutz! It’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today on behalf of KAZI Magazine! My name is Minnee and I’m ready to get into all things stylish, Marc Cutz and more! For readers tuning in, who is Marc Cutz and where did it all begin for you? What inspired you to get into being a professional barber?

It all started when I was 14 years old. I used to watch a lot of American  hiphop music videos and I instantly had an obsession towards hairstyles such as buzz cuts, waves, afros amongst others. I was captivated by the way they looked so fresh and clean; perfect in my eyes at the time. I remember watching one of my favorite rappers, Ludacris’s new music video and was like “ How is this haircut so perfect?” Ludacris had a dark Caesar with a crisp hairline, sideburns and goatee. People around me did not have fresh haircuts and from then, I was instantly hooked. I was on a mission to learn how to achieve this on myself. Barbers could not replicate the haircuts I would show them at the barbershop. Later on when I moved to Toronto, I decided to make barbering my career as I loved it so much. As a new comer to Canada, I was not allowed to have a job and barbering was also a way for me to make some money under the table”. 

  • As a celebrity barber, what was your first experience like with a celebrity client?

At the time, a celebrity barber was not a thing. I was and still am so passionate about making my clients look and feel amazing no matter what their status could be. My first celebrity client was my boy Jazz Cartier, who at the time had a buzz coming up as a new artist. My friend AJ told me that Jazz needed a haircut on set. This was my first time cutting an actual artist on a video set. Knowing that everything needed to look crisp, I was a bit nervous especially not being in a barbershop environment. Everything came out perfect and me and Jazz built a good relationship from then on”. 

  • Continuously catapulting your network, could you tell us some of your celebrity clients that you’ve collaborated with to do your signature style cuts on? 

I’ve cut many clients from The Weeknd, Boi1da, T minus, Travis Kelce, James Harden, Metro boomin, Preme, French Montana, Vory and many more”. 

  • Known for your renown cuts, what would you say is the dopest cut you did, on who, and for what? 

I wouldn’t say I have a favorite cut or on who but I can definitely say that every time I cut my clients, it’s an honor for me to make sure that they look their best for any occasion that they have going. Every hairstyle is custom to the person so for me it’s a freshly tailored haircut every time I touch the clippers”. 

Marc Cutz Cuts Into The Career Of Music Management

• Utilizing your clientele and network, you switched your success into entrepreneurship and music management. Can you tell us more about your career changes?

When it comes down to entrepreneurship, it was only natural for me to gravitate into other avenues of business whether they are barber related or not. Barbering is fun and I’ve been in those waters for many years and have been comfortable in that career path. It was only a matter of time until I wanted to venture into new waters. I’ve always had a taste of entrepreneurship watching my dad run his coffee shop for over a decade back home. I learned a lot from him and ran with it as I expanded my knowledge by speaking to people doing bigger and better than me. It only inspired me to get out there and do it myself!

  • Clearly a man of many talents and knows how to manage and make money! What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs? As well as those wanting to get into the music industry? 

I ran with the lifestyle of possibly making $0/day to thousands a day and being comfortable knowing that these 2 options are both possible on a daily basis. That’s the essence of entrepreneurship.It just takes dedication to yourself. You have to run a tight ship and have an end goal vision to accomplish everything in between. Most importantly, you have to be 200% invested in what you embark on. No point in starting something because you see someone else doing good in another venture but you really don’t have a true passion for it yourself. 

As for the music industry, I would say that it is like any other business. Make sure you have your affairs in order so that you can progress within that venture. Trust the process!” 

  • Excited to hear more — what’s next for Marc Cutz?

For now you can expect more collabs with many artists and companies”. 

  • Lastly, is there a message that you’d like to leave with fans? 

“Don’t ever dream cheap!”
