    Personal attention and a reasonable price tag are what you can expect from this Cobble Hill salon—and any of their Manhattan locations, too. The price of your cut depends on how long your hair is to start, but most should come in at under $100 before tip. [Photo]

    Tucked away in a West Village basement, Whittemore House is a secret model hotspot. The stylists specialize in no-fuss cuts, and you can see their handiwork on Anja Rubik, Freja Behar Erichssen, and Daria Werbowy. [Photo]

    This Tokyo transplant has had this Midtown location since 1978, and later added a second salon on the Bowery. Prices start at $60 for women's sessions, and their infusion of Japanese techniques into a typical haircut help to create flattering styles, particularly on those of Asian descent. [Photo]

    "All of my friends who have the very best hair see Corvette (that's his name!) at Graceland in Brooklyn," one Vox Media staffer told Racked of the salon whose cuts start at $85 for women. "Like, three different great-hair friends, none of whom know each other." Bonus points for the salon doubling as a tattoo parlor. [Photo]

    This West 10th Street mainstay was the city’s first unisex salon. Opened in the ‘70s, Seagull’s interior is a mishmash of pink and orange tile, pendant lamps, and photos of art icon clients. Come here if piecey and asymmetrical is what you’re after. [Photo]

    Does the thought of taking a flatiron to your hair make you flat-out LOL? Take your curls to the Devachan experts, who can snip your natural texture into face-flattering styles that don't require tons of maintenance post-cut. [Photo]

    Book an appointment at the cult favorite hair care brand's Meatpacking District salon when you have a couple extra hours to enjoy the view, shop the retail section, and get a sandwich or a juice from the in-house café.

    The Sally Hershberger salons have developed a cult following, and for good reason. With full-page bios dedicated to each staff member on the salon’s website, clients feel like they know what they’re getting into when they pick a stylist. Sally’s Meatpacking outpost is home to (pricey) celebrity colorist Aura Friedman, who has worked her magic on Soo Joo, Sky Ferriera, and Lady Gaga, but if you’re on a budget the salon also offers cuts by junior hairdressers from $130.
