Our Barbers


Owner | Master Barber

I’m from a small town in central MN. Raised by both my mom and dad running their own barber/ beauty shop. They were hard-working, professional, passionate about the people, and delivering a precise service. Following in their footsteps, I attended and graduated from Moler Barber School 30 years ago. After, apprenticing under my dad for 22 years, I decided to open Handle Bars Barbershop in Monticello. It feels much like the town I’m from. My love for hair is as deep as my love for people. I specials in men’s cutting, fading, and hot towel shaves. Although this is a barbershop. I want everyone to come to experience our old-school vibe with an edge for your entire family.



Hey there hey!

I'm Kari from "Cali" but moved to the Mid-west in 2017 for a new adventure and real seasons. I've been behind the chair since High School and licensed since 1996. I come from a family of "hair people" and was Barber Trained in a Barber Shop back home in Chico, CA. I specialize in tapers, fades, kids hair cuts and styling women as well. I'd love to meet you and look forward to getting to know you and your family.
