Meet The Masters

Terrell Smith

Terrell ”Mr. Red“ Smith always knew he wanted to be his own boss. With a flair for styling, he received his Barber’s License in 2002 and made his dream come true in 2009.

In 2014, he and his business partner, Papi, opened the first Gentlemen Cuts, eventually relocating to the current location in East St. Paul. ”I love the interactions with people,” says Terrell. ”I am a people person. I love to see people come in and say, ‘Red, you got to help me get it together,’ and be able to help them out.“

Working his way up through the barber shop, he’s currently a co-owner with Terrell and has experience with any style cut you’re looking to get.
