High Horse Salon
Former Hair Metal stylist Kristi Banister owns both this salon and the whiskey saloon next door, which just on its own should give you an idea of what you're in for when you drop by for a haircut. Décor-wise, High Horse nails the Williamsburg meets Old West vintage aesthetic, with taxidermy accents, salvaged fixtures, and old scissors hanging on the walls. As for the vibe, Banister and her heavily tattooed staff run the place like a perpetual happy hour―though there's no drinking on the job, of course―with Dirty Projectors (or whatever the kids are listening to these days) on the stereo, and a friendly, inclusive energy among the stylists and neighborhood regulars. Cuts start at a very reasonable $45 for men and $65 for women, and while the group is no doubt up on the latest trends―rockabilly slick-backs and ombré dye-jobs are the current most-requested―you can still get a wearable, wash-and-go look here that suits any style.
