I've been going to an Asian hairstylist in the city for 8 years now. It's getting quite expensive now at $45 but there's hardly been times where I didn't like the result. Nice combo of scissorwork and clippers plus wash and massage by one of the apprentices at the start and style your hair after the cut. He can do as conservative as you want and as edgy or fashiony as you want, but he's going to tell you when he thinks your idea blows. Been getting mostly conservative cuts from him but he likes to give you some slight style variations each time if you allow him. Tried letting him take the reins and getting a trendier cut a couple of years ago and I didn't like it due to big difference to the norm. Still got heaps of compliments for it - actually more than usual. So he knows what he's doing.
