There’s no shortage of fancy-schmancy salons in this city, but sometimes it’s nice to get a haircut without dipping into your rent money, and Supercuts is always a risk. Good thing three former Big Hair stylists teamed up to open Twisted Scissors, a salon that offers cheap cuts that start at $25. The salon’s objective of not overcharging for its service has caught on, as it’s not uncommon to have to wait a couple weeks for an appointment. But it’s worth the wait—you won’t be offered PBR at Hair Cuttery.
