I've been going to Sal's - for over 13 years and know many of the customers are regulars. The regulars each seem to have their favorite barber - I happened to get Sal the first time I went, loved the haircut, and have stuck with him since. He's efficient, pleasant and does an excellent job. And the treatment is old-world first class - you get a shampoo, a hot towel on the face, and the neck is finished with a straight razor. Prices have remained medium for Manhattan - slowly creeping towards thirty for the men's cut. I know there are less expensive haircuts to be had from real barbers elsewhere, but they've earned my loyalty and getting a haircut there gives me just a hint of pampering without getting into extravagant time or money.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
