Hair is an important part if everyone's life. When you look good, you feel good. Jenn is the other senior stylist who's been styling hair since her grade school years. And, coming from a multicultural background, Jenn has experience with all hair types.

Turning the chapter in her personal hair journey, Jenn made the decision to grow out her relaxed hair in recent years. This has helped her to grow as a stylist and better relate to her clients.

No matter the service, Jenn will make sure you look and feel good when you leave.


Felipe is the manager of the salon. He's been with Cutz since its inception, taking care of the daily operations.

Felipe comes from Boston, where he worked as a mathematics professor at Northeastern University and Emerson College, and then as an avionics data analyst/engineer.
