Meet Yass at Mr Cuts
Blogged by: Norton Plaza 21 Jul 2016 View comments
Walking into a barber for the first time I don’t know what to expect, older gentlemen with handlebar moushtases in white aprons squabbling over what type of sandwiches to get for lunch in a stiff old timey shop.  I am shocked when I walk in and Mr Cuts is the exact opposite, the shop is modern with a modern art deco feature wall and accents of red throughout the shop, Trap music playing in the background. I almost feel like I’m in a lounge ready to order a negroni (to be honest, I’m ALWAYS ready to order a negroni).

I’ve been told to look for Yass and I find a cute, well groomed barber with a great smile wearing fresh Air Max’s.  I’m a bit weak in the knees and wish that I had put makeup on that morning.  I compose myself and ask Yass why he became a barber.  Yass and Mr Cuts has been at Norton Plaza for 4 months but Yass has always wanted to be a barber, even as a kid (side note: I wanted to be a olympic singing ice skater when I was a kid).   I find out that Mr Cuts does more than cut, they trim beards, give hot towel shaves and sell a variety of products.  Shampoo, conditioner even Rockstar beard oil – I didn’t even know beard oil was a thing!  In the middle of our interview a  customer walks in and I let Yass do his thing.  Seeing Yass work exposes the artist he is, in a matter of minutes a scruffy boy transforms sitting in his chair into a datable babe.  The shop starts to get busy and I leave Yass.

Seeing Yass’ skills, feeling the Mr Cuts ambiance, I can definitely recommend Mr Cuts – it’s a gem in the Inner West.  I only wish they took women clients.
