Ming Chiu’s salon might not have the design panache of more expensive places, but his work more than makes up for the lack of frills. Chiu has been cutting hair for fifteen years, and before even picking up his scissors he listens carefully as you describe what you have in mind, whether it’s a cautious trim or a radical change. His cuts are consistently impeccable, the La-Z-Boy–style recliners at the washing stations take the strain out of your neck, and the green-tea shampoos always come with a nice long scalp massage. A wash and cut is $30 to $35; with blow-dry, it starts at $45 and can go up to $60 for very long hair.
