A little snip off the ends, a standard layered do or a dramatic Posh Spice inspired bob {she’ll always own this style}, truth is you’re definitely going to need a great hairstylist, since a bad haircut makes you want to curl up and dye. For men alike, although we dig boys with a bob, whether you’re working long hair in a ponytail, mid-length hair, or a super short buzz cut, we strongly suggest you don’t try it at home. LBBD went scouting for recommendations for the best stylists in the city for men and women and here’s the lowdown. Brush away your fears, in them we trust.

No Short Cuts | Hairstylists in Town Revisited {Men and Women's Edition}

Multiple Locations

By Editors

A little snip off the ends, a standard layered do or a dramatic Posh Spice inspired bob {she’ll always own this style}, truth is you’re definitely going to need a great hairstylist, since a bad haircut makes you want to curl up and dye. For men alike, although we dig boys with a bob, whether you’re working long hair in a ponytail, mid-length hair, or a super short buzz cut, we strongly suggest you don’t try it at home. LBBD went scouting for recommendations for the best stylists in the city for men and women and here’s the lowdown. Brush away your fears, in them we trust.
