    Not sure where to ask this but does anyone know of a place they highly recommend for wedding updo’s, etc?

    I need to find a place for next month after a last minute change of plans with the individual I went with. I have received a few recommendations but no one anyone seemed real passionate about.

    Usually I go to Mad One Jacks but they are totally booked on August 16th. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to start this process over again and meet with 50 people before I find the right one.

    Thanks!!

    I’m new to town and I was excited to find a cool place to get my hair cut near my condo. I made an appointment and was shocked to hear that the owner is charging $70 for guy’s hair cut. After two days of thinking about it, I decided it can’t be worth it — hot towel and cheap wine or not. There are a ton of old school places in the area. Does anyone have any reco’s?

    “old school places”?

    I remember I used to get my hair cut at a real old school barbership called “Sigfrido’s”:
    cityguide.aol.com/newyork/entertain...t/sigfridos-barber-shop/v-106903390

    It’s on 1st avenue, and I used to take the PATH to 23rd and hoof it over there, haircuts were $12.

    Also if you go to MOJ – you can get another stylist (not the owner, which at any salon is the premium cost for a cut) for a lower price.

    In Hoboken, I know a lot of guys go to Supercuts, 425 Washington St.

    My husband just got his haircut at Buzz Cuts Uptown ($16), and it looks great. He also goes to Supercuts ($15 I think).

    Supercuts. If you can put up with the annoying banter it is the best deal in town . . .

    I used to work at MOJ and will now only go to Salon Caru for hair.
    Where ever on the planet Curtis and Colin go I’ll follow.
    I can’t recommend them high enough.
    I trust Curtis to the point where I go in and tell him to “do whatever he thinks I need” and I walk out with an amazing cut every time.
    Colin used to do my color at MOJ when I had it colored and I adore his work. He’s extremely talented and strives to really give you what you want and what will make you look the best.

    I prefer “Hairway to Heaven”. If they are closed I will go to “Shear Obsessions”. But if I’m stuck in a bind, I could always hit up “Hair We Are”.

    You mean “Hair I Am” for women and men?

    That’s where my boyfriend goes, 5th between Adams and Jefferson.

    Mr. L’s Hair Creations.

    I always thought it was some place that specialized in novelty centerpieces for hair-centric receptions or the like, but it turns out that it’s just some barber. Boo.

    I refer you to my previous post…..you can thank me later!

    [quote comment=”76444″][quote comment=”76420″]I get my haircut by Jack himself and am always pleased. Does he knock my socks off…no, but as a guy with shortish hair, I don’t do anything amazing with my hair style, anyway.

    His cuts are consistent and he’s a nice guy. Everyone else in the salon is also very friendly and chatty. On top of that, guys get a free clean-up service, so it extends your haircut a couple of weeks, which helps justify the price a bit more.

    In regards to turnover, the salon industry is notorious for having high turnover.

    Almost all of these salons have revolving doors when it comes to stylists.[/quote]

    If you want to get your “socks knocked off” you should be getting your hair cut at Shear Madness. Victor has been cutting my hair for the past 8 years and he is amazing. He primarily cuts guys hair and has a reception area full every time I’m there so I would suggest an appointment. He also offers a free clean-up service between appointments and charges much less than Jack – around $30. You’d have to be MAD (pun intended) to pay a King’s ransom for a cut you’re not thrilled with :!:[/quote]

    Mr L’s is great – Haircuts are $14 (pretty sure) and its a nice old fashioned barber shop.

    One of my friends recommended I try this place out… and I am so sorry I did. Would never recommend for anyone to go there and I would never go back even if they gave it to me for free. The overall service was awful!!! I hate to tell you but your on Madison St in Hoboken not NYC get over yourselves. Also, I told Jack that my hair takes to color very quickly and recently my colors were coming out darker than I liked. He barely listened – left the color on for way too long and my hair was almost black – I expressed my disappoint which was barely acknowledge. I even called back later to see if Jack would call me back to set up a corrective appointment and never heard back. AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL
