Wondering if anyone can share their spots for a decent hair cut to basically just restore some shape to medium length hair as I'm growing it out. I've found places to be so hit and miss that I figured I'd ask after my last 2 haircuts. Can be anywhere in the city.

Chelsea Barbers used to be awesome but they've raised their prices about $10 every 6 months for the last 4 years or so...

I started going to Premium Barber Shop (E 52nd St) when I couldn't take the price hikes at Chelsea anymore. It's like $20. No hot shave or towel like you get at Chelsea, but still a pretty solid cut.

Not sure if it's considered reasonable but Erica Fleishman on 49th St is amazing, ask for Janney.

Seconded. Erica cut my hair a few weeks back. She did an awesome job.

It's pricier though. $72 for a cut and $82 for a cut/manicure. Well worth it, though, especially if you want to get it completely restyled like I did.

What the...

$70+ for a cut? And here I thought a $40 cut at FSC was reaching ridiculous.

wtf and i thought i was paying a lot at 20. fuck is wrong with you kids with all this excess disposable income. my advice, get out of manhattan and go to an asian hair salon. they'll cut your hair better for less

Interesting place. They break a few NY health codes by using non-disposable straight blades. I don't want to be cut with a blade that has been used on 10 other guys that day.
