We’ve all had those days when your roots are shining, your split ends have suddenly started growing horizontally and every salon in the city has a monthlong waiting list.
For a fabulous quick fix, pop into the new Rudy’s Barbershop (yes, a unisex barbershop), conveniently located in the Flatiron district next to the Ace Hotel. Walk-ins are welcome, and with ladies’ cuts running from $40 to $60 and color at $80, it’s a total lifesaver in a pinch.
But fret not: This is no Supercuts. The impossibly hip staff will treat your tresses with products from Bumble and Bumble, Malin+Goetz and, most exciting, Kiehl’s. (Rudy’s is the first salon ever to partner with the iconic New York brand.)
Those savvy to the Pacific Northwest scene are probably well aware of Rudy’s industrial aesthetic and cult following (there are 14 locations in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles); however, the first East Coast locale is uniquely New York and decked out in local, reclaimed materials.
We love this no-fuss approach to cleaning up and promise your secret (from your regular stylist) is safe with us.
Rudy’s Barbershop, 14 W. 29th St. (at Broadway); 212-532-7200 or rudysbarbershop.com
