There's one on almost every block in the City, but don't go making appointments at random neighborhood barbershops when you need a chop. Who knows what might happen. You could lose an ear, pay waaaay too much dinero, or worse—get a fucked up haircut. New York is a big scary place, and if you aren't careful you might just fall victim to one of the many shady businesses out there. So close your Yelp tab, cancel your appointment at Supercuts, and click through to see NYC's best barbershops in action.
