Known professionally by his first name, the barber behind the eponymous Oscar New York prides himself on his signature style, which blends the lost nostalgia of a great generation with the world’s increasingly modernized times. As clients relax in a sophisticated leather-barber chair, puffing a complimentary cigar paired with a glass of wine or a few fingers of single-malt scotch, Oscar transforms scraggly hair into a cut befitting a gentleman or a particularly dignified police horse. Oscar also specializes in the straight-razor shave, a lavish service that includes the warm lather and precision cuts valued by men of yore. In addition to his work helping men reconnect with their grooming roots, Oscar frequently performs in-home services and has previously plied his trade at establishments including The Art of Shaving on Madison Avenue.
