Hairdressers that listen... and cut hair, really well!
By robertgilpin on 3/23/2011
A boutique salon that provides relaxation, pre-cut beverages and most importantly, hairdressers that: a) listen b) care c) recognize heads come in all different shapes and sizes (and treat them appropriately!!!) Great experience and would recommend without hesitation.

Immediately greeted at the door, my coat taken, I felt so welcomed at Birds and Fellas. The cozy salon had that at-home feel, especially when wine or coffee was offered. The staff is extremely gracious. Asking about your magazine choice, drink preference and birthday, Birds and Fellas really makes you feel special. Aside from the immense hospitality, Jennifer spent a good 20 minutes with me making sure she understood what I wanted from my color and didn't miss a detail. The result was amazing. It was exactly what I asked for and more than I imagined it could be. I'm extremely happy with the results & the price! A great spot, and the only salon I will go to from now on!
Finally Found What I was Looking For

My job forces me to move a lot, so I feel I am always having to play Russian Roulette with finding a new stylist with every new city. Which is why I count myself so lucky to have found Birds and Fellas so early in my search - literally the first salon I tried in New York! The service is impeccable, the staff so friendly you feel you've been going to them for ages, and through my entire cut JamieLynn, my stylist, walked me through everything she was doing and why, and the consultation prior to any cutting was very thorough - she didn't want to get started until I had voiced everything and she had made sure she had heard me correctly. Everything was so personalized as well, which really make me relax and enjoy my time there. And of course - finally - the cut was incredible, and she didn't just do a simply blow-dry, but fully styled it for me - I felt really great walking of there. Top marks for Birds and Fellas, and JamieLynn!!
Great hair, great people

As a guy, searching around for a good hair cut bargain in NYC can be somewhat daunting if you want to step it up beyond an Astor Hair job for $15. Birds and Fellas delivers. A great little place with lovely people. Highly recommended.
What a find!

My husband and I just moved here in December-- looked ALL over for a salon. I am VERY picky- hey, what can I say, I loves my hair. I went on NY Mag and found this-- SO glad I did. My stylist was sweet- she did a great job, AND they make sure and have your favorite bev and mags there when you arrive! Who can ask for anything more??

I'd been feeling blah about my hair, and after surveying many salons around the East Village and Williamsburg, I came across Birds & Fellas, and now won't go anywhere else! After the cut, my hair felt revived and fresh, and I've never gotten so many compliments. The stylist added a few simple layers and it did the trick. Plus, the atmosphere was super-chill and relaxing.

I went to Birds & Fellas for the first time earlier this week and thought it was so refreshing compared to other hair care experiences I've had in the city . I went in with a picture of the hairstyle I wanted and Theresa was able to give me exactly what I was looking for--and was so kind. And the salon itself is contemporary and chic, while still remaining cozy and accessible, which is exactly what I want at the end of a work day.
Jamie Lynn is Fabulous!!!
By cat40978 on 10/3/2009
I just got my hair cut by Jamie Lynn and she's AMAZING! I went from long to super short - similar to Michelle Williams's hair on the cover of Vogue. I am Asian and have very fine hair. It really takes an expert to cut my type of hair especially for a short hairstyle. Jamie Lynn was precise and accurate and really understood what I was looking for and what it takes to shape my hair to match my face. I am EXTREMELY happy with my hair cut and will recommend Jamie Lynn to anyone. Also the salon itself is very accomodating offering beverages and even wine! Side note: I used to get $100 haircuts from another salon and this was a better cut at a better price!!!
loved this place

I went to get a haircut at Birds & Fellas based on this and other reviews online, and had a fantastic experience. I wasn't really articulate about what kind of cut I wanted, but could picture it in my head. They were able to translate my poor descriptions into a great haircut. The place also looks really stylish, has great service with drinks included, and has a really down-to-earth staff which is great for this neighborhood.
NOT MANY OTHER SALONS LIKE IT
By ToddS on 8/19/2009
This place is quite unique. It's small but packs in the extras. Besides the great men's cut I get from either of hte two female stylists I go to, they offer unlimited free drinks, have super cool music, and they send out email reminders. Their clients seem to be young and hip and mostly creative professionals (I do web design). I've sat next to film editors and girls in the fashion industry. The prices are reasonable for all the stuff you get, and the staff is very friendly.
- 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.
