An old-school barbershop (black-and-white-checked floors, chairs from the thirties) without the stodginess, Frank’s Chop Shop delivers polite, efficient service along with hipster cuts beloved of young Wall Streeters and skateboarders alike (19 Essex St., nr. Hester St.; 212-228-7442). A shampoo and cut goes from $20 to $55, a traditional razor shave is $15, and there’s a selection of caps from New Era.
