Kindred Kuts is a queer-friendly barbershop in Amsterdam, offering high-quality, gender-affirming haircuts for everyone no matter how they identify. We offer creative cuts and welcome all hair textures and lengths – and just so you know we love beard trims too!

Led by Gray (she/her/bro) an experienced barber, Kindred Kuts aims to make queer folk and their friends, feel and look good. The barbershop has traditionally been a cis-male and heteronormative space but at Kindred Kuts, we believe you’ll find your tribe.

Gray specialises in a wide variety of short hairstyles, including fades, Afro and Asian hair,  thick and thin hair, designs and transformation cuts.

"Kindred" means one's family or relatives, people you’re related to. Your kindred are your people, so whether you need hair care or hair flair, we got you.



My name is Sjaq [ Shak ]. I am passionate about creating unique and personalized hairstyles that reflect the personalities and inner selves of my clients. For me, hair cutting is not just about creating a specific look, but also about expressing oneself and feeling confident in one’s own skin. 

I specialize in a variety of hairstyles, including skin fades, mullets, shaggy cuts, and wolf cuts. I love experimenting with different textures and lengths to create truly unique and eye-catching looks. Whether you’re looking for a bold and edgy style or a more classic and refined look, I can help you achieve your desired outcome.

As a queer-friendly barber, I welcome clients of all genders, sexual orientations, and backgrounds. I believe that everyone deserves to feel comfortable and respected in the salon, and I strive to create a safe and inclusive space for all.

So if you’re looking for a talented and passionate barber who can help you express your unique style and personality, look no further. 

Let's work together to create a look that's uniquely you and complete your overall aesthetic.
