Best Men's Hairstylist
Rodney Cutler at ArrojoCutler
115 East 57th Street

If you're the kind of the man whose escapades with hair-styling products have made you look more like Claus Van Bulow than like George Clooney, there is professional help on the horizon. Rodney Cutler, owner of the sleek salon bearing his name, is just enough of a guy's guy to put any leery male patron at ease. An Australian football champ, Cutler can move easily from dissecting last night's game to giving easy-to-follow advice to his clientele about how to keep their perfectly formulated coifs in top shape. "Rodney's the only person I'd send my boyfriend to," enthuses a beauty editor at a women's fashion mag. "He makes looking good easy for the average guy." Cutler describes his appeal this way: "Men want to look fashionable, but they also need to feel comfortable. When they come in here they understand they're not going to be all styled up -- I don't blow-dry their hair, I just put in a little product, show them how to maintain it, and away they go" (haircut, $80).
