Haircuts for Little or Nothing at All
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., John Allan’s tests out new stylists with free cuts on voluntary models (418 Washington St., nr. Vestry St.; 212-334-5358).
For $15, you can’t do much better than Village Cuts. First timers get 10 percent off (179 W. 4th St., nr. Jones St.; 212-675-6736).
Everyone from hip-hoppers to hedge-funders swings by Frank’s Chop Shop for cuts ($22 to $45) and straight-razor shaves. By appointment (19 Essex St., nr. Hester St.; 212-228-7442).
Tuesdays through Saturdays, stylists-in-training at the Aveda Institute give $20 haircuts— all under an instructor’s supervision (233 Spring St., nr. Varick St.; 212-807-1492).
Junior stylists’ services can cost $200, so the $65 cuts at Panyc Salon are a relief (36 W. 17th St., nr. Fifth Ave., fifth fl.; 212-675-7269).
