NYC Hairstyle

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking specifically for a place in NYC that will cut my hair and give me recommendations about how to cut my hair. I don't really know what's the best way to cut it (I just graduated college and I used to just shave it all off) so I'm at a loss when the barber asks "how would you like it?" So any places you can think of that will give a clueless guy a good hair style is appreciated. I posted this on the grooming section too, but the clothes section seems to get more traffic.

The guy who cuts my hair is not cheap (Few are in NYC these days, as with most services) at $100 plus tip, but he's a follicular artist and is very approachable for advice, if you can spring for it: His name is David and he works at EM Studio, 762 Madison Ave, 212.472.3440.  It's a small, quiet, unrushed atmosphere conducive to what you're looking for.  He works a lot with models, so he is customarily called upon to offer advice and suggestions. Has a good deal of patience and needs to be ahead of the curve with styles, although I receive a very conservative cut. Might be worth it just for one cut and consultation. Grayson

A good haircut will run you $100+/- in NYC; this is normal. I go to Mudhoney salon on Bond St. They do alot of Rock n Roll styles, very hipster. They'er one of the few places I can just say "do whatever" and I know it's going to look good.

Buy a decent shaver, set in on 1 or 2 , depending on how long you like your hair, and go to town. You're guaranteed to never have a "Flock of Seagulls, why? Why? Why?" moment of regret in to future. And given that you'd probably have to get a haircut every two months (conservative estimate), and that a decent shaver costs about $35, you'll save $565 the first year, and $600 for every year thereafter. Until you go bald.

A good haircut does NOT have to run nearly that much in NY. I get my haircut at Hoshi Coupe II. It's a Japanese place, very minimalist and hip. I tell them to do whatever, and that's what they do. They know what they are doing. Costs $40 and includes a massage. Dan
