THIS VENUE IS CLOSED

It is under new management. SAME SPACE. SAME NAME. SAME SIGN. NOT Birds and Fellas... IT IS SKETCHY.
Are we talking about the same salon?
By jbird on 2/19/2010
Ok, so the place was cute, unfortunately I couldn't enjoy the atmosphere considering the tiny space was too small to walk and there was no heat to defrost me from outside. Now the stylist. She was really nice (I'll admit that) but I have to say this was the worst haircut I've ever received. It took so long with no pay off - different lengths of hair, no consistant style, old fashion...just a mess. It made me think for the first time in my life that maybe the bargain rate isn't such a bargain. Skip this place, there are plenty more in New York worth trying.

Awesome Salon- Great Service & A Great Cut
By caughtoffgard on 9/2/2009
After reading reviews on this site & others, I decided to try this place out and was not disappointed. I had a great experience & got a great cut at a reasonable price- especially for NYC! Teresa really listened to what I was looking for & delivered. I love the design of the salon & the service is great. I will definitely be going back.
Great deal in Manhattan
By RCLManhattan on 10/9/2009
This was my first good experience at a hair salon in Manhattan. Theresa, my hairstylist, was fantastic. I wanted to go blonde & she took the time to explain to me exactly how blonde she could go & why (I had very dark hair at the time). I had a picture in my head which I communicated in very inexact terms, but when she was finished it was exactly as I'd pictured it in my mind. The salon is hip & comfortable, the drinks keep coming, the music is great and it's on overall fun experience. Best of all is that it's a great value. I will definitely go back!
Great haircut, great experience

I had gotten my hair cut and colored by Jamie Lynn, and she did a great job! I was thrilled with my color and she gave me a very unique blowout that I showed off for the rest of the day. Also the atmosphere is very relaxed and personal feeling.
The Cure for the Common Salon
By klmorgan on 5/23/2010
Birds and Fellas hits the right balance of being a modern, creative salon without the pretentious attitude or absurd price tags. They have capable stylists that listen to what you want and can deliver, and an amazing understanding of customer service. Theresa has done wonders with styling and blowing out my hair, which is a feat because it is so thick and unruly. I also love that the owner is creative in offering regular perks to his customers, and does a great job encouraging friend referrals (I'm a marketing nerd, so I can appreciate the power of word-of-mouth!). If you're jaded with the NYC salon experience, or just want to try something new, I promise you won't be disappointed!

I came here initially at the recommendation of a friend after a botched haircut. I've received cuts from both Jamie Lynn and Lauren, and they're both highly recommended- they are friendly, patient, and great listeners. I'm now a regular, and highly recommend them as a place to go for a great cut at the half the price of what other salons would offer for comparable service!
Great People, Great Vibe, Fantastic Haircut
By MeghanO on 3/12/2009
I had let my hair grow out and was completely bored with it. Went to B&F and could not be more excited! This was my first visit and I was really impressed by everything. I was offered a tasty beverage ranging from tea to martini's to red wine right when I walked in. I met the manager and Coco who were fun from the first moment. My hair made me look a little too old and mature so Coco vamped up it up a little. I always thought my hair was flat and straight - she cut it so my natural body in my hair came out but totally managable on a daily basis. We talked and laughed the entire time. If you're over the factory feeling of most salons - go here! They're focused on you and your hair 110%! Very reasonable price and they gave me a little gift bag when I left. Love that. Thanks Coco!
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.

- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
