    Can we get this list for lady cuts? I’m over paying $75 + each time I need my bangs trimmed. The only other alternative is to get a Miley Cyrus cut at one of these fine barber shops…

    Who’s Next? on Bushwick Ave is where my man goes for a shape up sometimes.

    Just had to comment about it because it’s my favorite barber shop name of all time.
