Erica Fleischman's one-room men's salon aims to provide relaxing, unfussy haircuts to the neighborhood's abundance of BlackBerry-toting financial, legal, and advertising professionals. Located on the ground floor of a ritzy residential building, the spot’s décor is earthy and masculine, with dark-wood floors, a cowhide rug, and a white tin roof. Clients are invited to grab a beer from the fridge or a spot of Macallan 12 scotch before heading to the chair; pre-cut consultations are chatty, but thorough. Fleischman focuses on classic, office-ready cuts that are easy to style and maintain. Manicures are conveniently available in tandem with your cut, though those with extra time can add on a signature beer rinse for $20. Touted as a service to boost shine and volume, the treatment includes a shampoo, dousing with cold beer, and a ten-minute scalp massage.
