- Ricky Pannell at Snip N Sip
204 Waverly Place, 212-242-3880
We’ve yet to find the guy who doesn’t have the same requirements when it comes to getting his hair cut: He likes it quick, fuss-free, and done right. It’s for these reasons that Ricky Pannell has developed a bit of a cult. Though his salon, Snip N Sip, has a kitschy fifties-soda-parlor theme, that’s where the novelty ends: Pannell is as expert at creating looks that are CEO-classic as ones that are cutting-edge cool. He’s also unfailingly charming, a quality no doubt honed while working with celebrity stylists like Oribe. And the Pannell experience isn’t just limited to the gents; he also cuts (and associate Alex Briones colors) women’s hair. ($55 and up for a men’s cut.)

So what exactly does “best” mean in a city with thousands of pizza joints, hundreds of celebrity masseuses, and museum-worthy concept shops on every corner? Well, in the case of this, our annual “Best of New York” roundup, there’s a heavy emphasis on what’s new or what has somehow remained virtually unheard of (until now, of course).
