I have to say, one of the greatest haircuts I’ve gotten was in the City. I laid down a fi’ty plus tips, but walked out of the salon feeling like a million bucks. Feathered layers that fell just to my shoulders, and bangs that, for once, didn’t make me look a kid. (I’d tried bangs before in high school, but the stupid bowl cut look had made my age seem to drop into the single digits.)
Five months later, I needed a cut, but unfortunately at that time I was living in Wyoming. There were only two stylists in town, and after glancing into both shops, I chose the one which was not populated by balding cowboys and blue-haired old ladies. Two hours later, I walked out of Kathy’s Cuts feeling like I needed a bag over my head. Gaw, what had happened to my chic city cut, I mourned.
I’m now back living in the City, and ready for another cut. Soon, my po’dunk look will disappear under the savoir-faire and sleek scissors of a NYC stylist. I’m considering heading to Shampoo Avenue B for my New Year’s make-over. If you’re also looking for a make-over, you should consider them, too!
Shampoo Avenue B Salon, located in the Village on 42 Avenue B, is a soulful little salon. Ghetto-fab grafitti splashes across the walls, spiky chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and everything exudes that funky, feel-good vibe.

The stylists at Shampoo Avenue B have worked for big-name celebs like Jimmy Page, Gerard Butler, and the band Shiny Toy Guns, but they pamper you with the same celeb service.
