The phrase "shave and a haircut, two bits" appeared in the Old West when the amount of hard-drive space required to update robot hairstyles was 2 kilobytes. Travel back for an old-fashioned hair and whisker upgrade with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a signature shave and a haircut (a $65 value) at Barber's Blueprint on Mulberry Street. The personable and professional coiffeurs of this barbershop treat Dapper Dans and Bewhiskered Bertrams to old-timey haircuts and signature shaves. With exposed brick, ebony-and-ivory crystal chandeliers, high ceilings, and cameos from mustache-twiddling bandits, Barber Blueprint preens follicular forests in a fanciful setting. Lay back, think of England, and let the experienced barbers deliver a 45-minute old-fashioned signature shave complete with straight razors, hot towels, and a facial massage. Following the shave, fling your Stetson to the four winds and celebrate an expert haircut performed by talented shears.
Yelpers give Barber's Blueprint an average of four stars:
- I have had a haircut, shave and the royal experience and they have all been great. It is so relaxing I usually fall asleep and all at a great price, I come all the way from the UWS - Mark G.
- I receive a perfect haircut every time I stop in, and since cuts are $21, that means I can get one every 3 weeks or so. - Dan C.
