how much are you looking to spend? I like manetamed in williamsburg, pretty reasonable, she's vidal sassoon trained and will do exactly what you tell her very well. if you want to spend a little more, hard to go wrong with tommy guns, locations in the burg and in the LES.
I definitely don't want to spend much more than what manetamed costs. I might just get my friend that's an art student to cut my hair. Or I might just grow it out, not sure.
