Astor Hair  at 2 astor Place in Manhattan’s Greenwich VIllage is the real deal.  The basement babar shop has been cutting New Yorker’s locks for 65  years and they are still going strong.

Down the steps and through the double doors, there is a bustling cutting floor full of activity.  Busy stylists sweeping, cutting and washing are spread out in the sprawling space.  Check in at the desk in the fornt of the salon and they’ll take care of you.

You can book in advance or just walk in and their stylists specialis in men’s and women’s cuts.

A visit to Astor place harkens back to simpler times, you won’t be offered a glass of wine or an espresso here, but you’ll get a flavor of classic New York style and a quality hair cut for around $20 – $30  – unheard of in most NYC salons.
