Best Cool Haircut

  • April Barton

    Suite 303, in the Chelsea Hotel 222 W. 23rd St., 212-633-1011

    April Barton likes to freestyle her cuts—take out her scissors and go at the head until she achieves the look she thinks her client needs. Her cuts (from $95) are bold, choppy, and made for women and men who have an open mind toward their coiffure—or fast-growing hair. Much of her following comes from the downtown creative set, so don’t be surprised if Barton wants to read your latest manuscript, listen to your demo tape, or see your movie trailer before trimming.
