Hair: Awesome Salon in Greenpoint

I’ll wear clothes that are falling apart, I only put on make up for job interviews, but I feel like less of a person when my hair looks like shit. But the idea of spending $60+ on a haircut makes me want to vomit. So since moving to New York, I’ve stuck to beauty schools and salons that charge $20 as long as you get your hair blow dried. Last week, I reached the point where I couldn’t put off a haircut any longer: I could put it into a ponytail. But I decided I couldn’t handle another 30 minutes of sitting in the salon chair feeling like the stylist is in a hurry and worrying that they’re going to give me an indie/Euro mullet without my consent, all while listening to fresh 107fm. So I set to the internet in search of someplace new, and found Hair, a tiny salon in Greenpoint.

Kim, the owner, gives a kick ass cut. She’s steadily booked, but she takes the time to study your hair and figure out what it needs. She speaks to your cowlicks calmly and tries to snip them into submission. She explains first and cuts second. I walked out of the salon bouncing and frolicking a bit through the rain because I haven’t had a hair cut this good in years. And the best part is her rates are really reasonable: $25 for guys and $45 for girls.

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
