Can't believe this doesn't have more reviews – Great mens cuts. After getting fed-up with crappy, 10-15 dollar haircuts, I started doing tons of research online. Citysearch was unreliable, as it became clear that a lot of the positive reviews were written by the salons and barber shops themselves. I started looking at Best Ofs from the Village Voice and Time Out NY, and eventually found this place as New York Magazine's best haircut choice. There are two stylists, Ricky the owner and Ubi. My first time in, I went with Ubi, because she was the cheaper of the two, and as it turned out, she was sick that day. Ricky cut my hair for the same price, and it was one of the best haircuts I've ever had. I returned several months later to Ubi, and was once again very, very pleased with the work. I'm now sold on the place, and am amazed it doesn't have more reviews.
Bottom line is, I don't care about ambiance, attitude, frills, whatever. I'm just a guy who wants a good haircut and doesn't want to have to think about it, and this place delivers without question.
