The Story Of

Skill Cutz
Barbershop & Salon


Immigrating from Haiti in 1997, Wil is known as North Dakota’s “First Black Barber.” He peddled a purple bike from a Cass County jail cell to Moler Barber College in downtown Fargo in 2006. Sheer motivation, dedication, and faith instilled in Wil by the Jail Chaplains, he has conquered the odds of going from Fargo’s Most Wanted to one of Fargo’s most successful entrepreneurs.

Wil, his brothers AJ and Louima, along with two other owners serve the Fargo / Moorhead community with unending passion. We aren't your typical barbershop or salon and don't aspire to be. Once you visit us, you'll understand why people drive from all areas of the tri-state region to sit in our chairs.
