Kevin Monroe 


Master Barber with vast knowledge and experience in the hair industry. He received his cosmetology credentials from Xenon International Academy in December 2011. Upon graduation, Kevin set up shop at the Edge Barbershop in North Kansas City. During his tenure there, Kevin built a strong client base, learned invaluable business practices, and began to realize his dream of entrepreneurship. In early 2016, Kevin got the vision to open an upscale barber experience for his customers. After months of planning and prayer, KC Master Kutz was born; officially opening the doors in September 2017. Kevin holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration which has equipped him with the education and skills necessary to run a successful business.


Kevin continues to build his client base by staying on top of the latest styles, trends, and products. Kevin strives to give each of his customers the crispest cut regardless of hair style, length, or texture. This alone makes him one of the most sought after barbers in the Kansas City metro area. He is always looking for ways to enhance the barber experience for his clients and further establish his brand by offering barber services as well as products that promote healthy hair and skin.
