    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!

    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.

    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:

    http://www.coquelicot-hair.com/

    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!

    Definitely not a fan of John Allen's -- I found them to be the glossy-black marble equivalent of Target. Not all of those stylists/barbers are equal and i never found one that was worth returning to.

    Somebody here recommended Ben at the Neighborhood Barbers in the East Village. Cut is sub $20 and great. I've been going there for a few months with great success. I also liked Ilya at Paul Mole on the Upper East Side but because I no longer work in the neighborhood it isn't as appealing. Those cuts were about $45.

    Chantal at Salon Ishi. Hands down the best haircut in NYC. Not fashion forward so don't go if you are in your 20's.

    Actually, got a good cut at Bedford Barber( E. 59th). My preferred girl was not around and I don't like to experiment for many dollars because it is almost always a waste no matter the cost. Had the older, bald headed guy, don't know his name. Think it starts with a B.
    He took the time and got it almost exactly right which was not the easiest task.
    I don't think just asking for a quiff with short sides, a peaked side crop or whatever style you want based solely on a name will work there but some pics should do the trick. Did for me(plus all my personal annoying constraints). Other thing is that I went at a bit of an off hour. Results might be better than during the crush rush.
    Since this is not an uber salon, definitely know what you want instead of asking for them to give you a 'look'.
    Might sound like BS that this guy did a fine job(I hardly believe it myself) but it was really good. I am a picky bitch for what it is worth.
    $16, that made it great and certainly worth a go.

    If you want a place in BK, I can give you my girl's name. $35, I think, maybe $30. Does a lot of fashion forward/hipster 'dos but will cut a plain or conservative style as well. Just good technique that applies to any cut. Also, she can help with styling if you want to mix it up though I think it is always best to have a basic idea in your own mind.
    Also, a place in upper Chelsea. Never actually got mine cut there but have seen other results(though mostly women) and had gone for a quick consult. I think it is $70 though.

    Good luck

    How does one pay anything more than 20 bux for a haircut?? That's like paying 1K for a JAB suit.......
