I’ve been going to Alex for years now- simple, efficient, and friendly. Makes you feel like a truly valued client- and for 18 bucks? You really can’t get a better deal in the city. Always makes sure you are pleased and if you have any adjustments to make, he takes care of it. Go in and ask for Alex, he’s right next to zack (also great if you go on a Tuesday when Alex isn’t there) on the right when you walk in.read more

Best place to get a haircut in NYC. Legendary spot filled with characters and photos of all the celebs who stopped by. You always get a good cut, super fast. It's a true New York experience. Cash only of course and no need for an appointment. Be sure to tip because the prices are right and the work is solid.read more

My Barber is Morales and he is Phenomenal! It's an old school barber that's been around over 40 years. Many of the other hairstylists, barbers, and staff are extremely nice. The prices Morales charges are still affordable post quarantine. Be prepared to have your temperature checked upon arrival and there is an occupation limit, but I'm not sure what the numbers are. If you go tell Morales Omena Sent you.read more

Astor Place Hair is probably one of the barbershops in the city. I've been going there for 4 years now and just went since they reopened after being closed due to COVD-19 lockdowns. The experience is extremely safe with temperature checks and plastic coverings between stations to mitigate contact with other customers. Jose is my barber there - he always provides a great cut. Happy to have Astor Place Hair open again.read more

I am a client at Astor Place for over 20 years. Jose has been my stylist for cuts and hilites. they have made many adjustments to the salon including temp at the door, stylists separatedby clear plastic curtains,masks for all and change of gowns between each client. And extensive cleaning between clients. I highly recommend it (especially Jose—super nice guy as well as talented)Astor Place is a NYC Icon Please support itread more

I have been going to Astor Place Hairstylists and having Jose cut my hair for about 30 years now (4 others have also cut my hair and no complaints when Jose wasn't available). I am so happy that they were able to get funded to stay in businesses, this is a New York Institution. They are totally on point with safety protocols so come in and support them.read more

I've been going here for maybe 20 years, and I hope it stays around. Scotti is my guy there. He's great. The place has history and charm. Right now they're hurting a little from the quarantine of course. I just went today though, and there was no wait, and it was all set up to be safe, with dividers between chairs, your temperature taken as you walk in, and of course everyone's wearing masks.read more

Classic cuts and unusual - there's someone to cut your hair however you like it. They do good color also. and it's only $25 for a cut! Great, fun place that has been around forever.read more

I really love and value Astor Place Hairstylists as an institution, but it's important to mention that it really depends on which hairstylist you get. The main point of this review is to say-- steer clear of the hairstylist Bella. I've only had positive experiences at Astor place until today when she cut my hair. She is very warm and sweet, which is why I feel bad writing this review, but i feel it is important to warn people of what may happen when Bella cuts your hair. Bella will disregard your wishes in order to cut your hair how *she* feels is best. Today I ended up with really poorly done layers, when all I asked for was a simple trim. I'm a person who is anxious & unadventurous when it comes to haircuts. I have never requested layers or any other kind of styled hair. I was very simple in my request that I just wanted her to cut off a couple of inches. It was beyond upsetting to realize that she had made her own aesthetic choice for my hair-- one which I did not want or request-- without consulting me or even mentioning what she was doing. On top of that, she cut my hair far shorter than the trim I requested, and the layers (if that's what she was attempting) look terrible so now I have to spend more money to go somewhere else and get it fixed. I have a friend who had a bad Astor place experience, but I couldn't remember who it was that cut her hair. After this happened, I asked my friend if she remembered the name of the woman who butchered her hair. Turns out, it was the same hairstylist-- Bella. She is a really kind person but if she cuts your hair, make sure to give her the most explicit instructions possible or she will go off script and do whatever she wants to your hair. Such an incredibly frustrating and violating experience.Go to Astor place hair, but do not go to Bella. If you do go to Bella, just be careful and be very very very clear about what you want. Don't give her room to improvise without your permission.read more

I have been coming to Astor for 40 years & Jose has cut my hair for the last 15 years or more Astir is a fun place & Jose is very professional & a very good man He always says after a haircut Robert “you look 10 years younger” That would make me 67 instead of 77 but what I also like about Jose is his warm personality. We share family doings & talk about the world in general When I heard during the Pandemic that Astor’s might close I was very concerned where Jose might go. I was relieved to hear that 5 new owners took over.read more

Narcy is AMAZING! She’s so sweet and so talented, I truly can’t believe any bad reviews here about her, if there are any. She completely transformed my hair from a dull, light brown choppy bob with grown out roots to a BEAUTIFUL perfect black bob with purple underneath. I still can’t believe this is my hair and she is my go-to stylist for good! GO TO NARCY IF YOU WANT AN AMAZING HAIR COLOUR AND HAIRCUT!read more

When I still lived in NYC, Astor Place was the only place I’d go to get my haircut. I averaged one a month for over 20 years.I would only see one barber … Valentino.He’s a wonderful man and a good soul.If you were having a lousy day, you’d be amazed what a haircut and a good conversation will do to pick up your day.He was probably my all time favorite barber.The barbershops that I have up where I live now don’t come close in comparison to the beautiful organized chaos that IS Astor Place!read more

Perfect for a quick trim. They are inexpensive and always do a decent job. And they have enough hair cutters that you don't need an appointment; stop in and they will have you in someone's chair within moments. Nothing too fancy, but perfect for keeping your mane under control.Be aware; they are a CASH ONLY establishment. (There is an ATM on site, but also Citibank is right across the street; just engender to get cash before you go in)Currently they are checking for proof of vaccination when you enter.read more

Astor Place Hair is a true NY treasure - been coming here since the 80s and it has kept all the old school NYC flavor in addition to housing the best barbers you will find anywhere. I went over 2 years without a cut until I could get back to Jose, he is magic with scissors & always leaves me feeling & looking great. Speedy is the master of the short cut and has serious charm. So many talented professionals in this shop, and Big Mike's art lights up the back rooms. Don't think I'll ever go elsewhere.read more

I've been coming to Astor Place since the 1980s. On one visit my regular hair stylist wasn't there and I was introduced to Jose. He did such a great job on my hair that he became my favorite and I won't choose anyone else there.Jose is an artist and you will look in the mirror and be satisfied with the results. Treat yourself to a great haircut and ask for Jose. In fact look for him, he's just in front of you, to the left, after you enter place.read more
