    A classic shave runs $11, and a shave/cut combo's a smooth $23. There are no frills or fancy artisanal chin butter at this neighborhood establishment, but there is a hot foam machine, a post-shave towel rub, and a friendly, skilled barber.

    $12 gets you the hot-towel treatment, though if you're going to combine it with a cut, it can climb up to $70. It's worth it to spring for the full deal.
