New York haircut recommendations?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good men's haircut in New York? Nothing too fancy, and I'm trying to keep it under $120.


Thanks!

Thanks!

That seems high.

There's the Carsten Institute, on Union Square, for a $65 haircut.

Here's a story on John Edwards $400 haircut and other celebrity haircutters. Carsten is mentioned.

For a good traditional haircut for around $20, go to Chelsea Barbers. If you want something more fashion-forward, try Mudhoney (multiple locations) for around $75 -- but beware of 'tude.

Michael Angelo's Wonderland Beauty Parlor. $85.

location in NYC has been important for me when getting a haircut, as I rarely venture outside of 5th, Madison, and around central park-- but then, I'm just a visitor to the City. I like John Allen and Trumans (most recently went to Trumans, but thinking about trying john allen if I can make it to next week's trip) and might get a shoeshine while I'm at it! I'm very into the lux mens-club atmosphere when I get a haircut in the city, not for everyone but makes me feel like a million bucks.

Another to consider for a great haircut, unsure of the cost on this one, is the Fekkai salon for men in the Henri Bendel building on fifth avenue.

Chelsea Barbers is now $30. Nevertheless, that's my recommendation, too.

Salon Fodera in the basement of the St. Regis. You can also get a shave and manicure if you need it. A haircut from someone other than Fodera is i the $80 range, I believe.

Have you tried the John Allan's at Saks? I find that to be the nicest and newest, although not the same clubby atmoshphere.

I'd also recommend John Allan's. I went to the one in Saks with my brother-in-law and we both liked it. We had some kind of coupon that he'd gotten and had a shampoo, haircut, manicure, and shoeshine for around $45 each.

I'll give John Allen's a try since it's near my office - how much for just a wash/haircut?

Been going to the same hip Japanese woman since I moved to the city 4 years ago. 3 salons later, she owns her own place. She's extremely good, I've recommended her to several dudes on here, heard good things back from them.

Her name's Kanae:

Can't recommend her enough. Think attractive, Japanese Edward Scissorhands with style. More skill with scissors than anyone else I've ever seen: a Japanese craftsman's sensibility, not a gay Euro's flamboyance.

She charges about $45 for a shampoo and cut.

If you want more info, PM me, I recommend her without reservation.

It is the same price for what they call a full service, which includes a shoe shine, manicure, hot towel, scalp massage and cut. I think it runs around $60, but there are usually coupons, or just tell them you want to try it out before you join. The Tribeca location has coupons floating around for $38.

I'm probably too ghetto to be of any help but I've been happy w/ George's on the corner of Beaver and William downtown.

$12 for a haircut. I've only ever gone around 5 and have always been able to walk in w/o a problem.

Classic haircut joint is Jerry's in Rockefeller Center. $32 or so, straight razor clean up, hot towel, old school. Similar joint is York Barbershop on Lex and 71st.

Tailors are not normally recommended for cutting hair!
