A stylist who oozes creativity is essential if you're looking for a unique and fashionable hairdo. Lucky for you, $40 gets you a Groupon for a haircut at Shampoo Avenue B, located at 42 Avenue B (between 3rd and 4th in the East Village). That's half off the normal $80 price!
Shampoo Avenue B owner Harley DiNardo (Aveda Advanced Academy-trained stylist by day and rock musician by night) used to supplement his income by cutting the hair of musician friends. With Shampoo Avenue B, DiNardo and his team mix rock 'n’ roll attitude with top-notch cutting skills to give you an innovative, creative cut to match your style. The salon is edgy, hip, and intimate, featuring local art on its brick walls and rock music to drown out the screams of your hair follicles as they're mutilated by Avenue B scissors.
You might dismiss your hair as merely a crop of protein filaments growing through the head's epidermis from follicles deep within, but DiNardo and his crew see it as a medium to create art. Watch them in action:
Rock ‘n’ roll has produced some of the very best hairstyles since the invention of hair. You can get any look—from the Iggy Pop to the Sinéad O'Connor—at Shampoo Avenue B. Just steer clear of Conditioner Boulevard C and Moisturizer Way D: they offer vastly inferior cuts and blast samba and polka, two musical traditions widely known for inspiring bowl cuts (and bowl cuts alone).
New York magazine says that "young professionals in the music, television, and magazine business in search of street-style cuts and edgy color fill Shampoo’s six chairs." Citysearch says, "Clearly, artistic expression is the overarching theme--and at the five cutting stations, stylists eschew looks from TV for more street-savvy and sexy cuts, as well as creative colors and highlights and innovative straightening techniques.”
- "My boyfriend went into shampoo to get a cut (that he really needed) and came home looking F-ing HOT! I had never seen such a detailed haircut on a man. It had tons of texture and it still looks good. It looks especially good after we have quality time ;-) But, it also looks amazing when he's all clean and groomed for work. Jenny gave my man an awesome cut and I can't wait to come in and get mine." – waspygirlnyc, Citysearch
