Worst place to get a haircut. It's a training school and you can get a haircut only from the trainees, who don't know how to cut hair! Water if time and money

This was a total rip off! - I was charged by Groupon $6 telling me that the original worth of the haircut is $15 (60% discount). But I was shocked to see that the original cost (as published inside the shop) of a haircut is only $3. This is really unacceptable and feel cheated in the entire process! - This place a group of novices who are learning at this institute and we are almost like experiments for them. I wish I knew this earlier or if it was communicated the same way on Groupon. It would have helped me make a more informed choice. I ended up leaving with my hair only half cut! I feel very disappointed and totally crushes my trust in Groupon to buy any other deals in future!

I think I have been very lucky, my barber was good and treated me the best. Nice cut.

This is a funky venue but very old new york. The barbers are students (not necessarily young) and spend a lot of time getting things right. They actually listen to requests. The shave, unfortunately, is with an electric razor so don't bother. More for the experience and the price can't be beat.

Really good cut! But I think the regular haircuts are cheaper than what I paid for the groupon. Check with them how much it is. But good cut!

I have never experienced a barber who gives absolutely his best. These people know how to cut hair. They have been doing it all their lives, and they attend the institute only to get a certificate in order to practice. I have had haircuts for which I've paid 30 dollars, and do not even come close to the one I just had. I strongly recommend it.
