Default Nyc trip need a cut

Can anyone recommend within the Manhattan/Queens/Long Island or Brooklyn areas a salon to visit that will do the following:

1. Be cost effective and not charge hundreds of crazy dollars
2. Offer a good trim my ends are in need
3. Good stylist techniques and know how on carrying for a variety of natural hair textures
4. Highly recommended by my peers tried and true evaluations

Thank you in advance ladies!!!

The Beehive is where a lot of people go. I went once, but since my stylist there went over to Self, I moved there as well. They're both in Brooklyn. They're pricey for someone like me who grew up with Dominican hair salons, where $40 is considered a lot, but they're under $100, which a lot of the big names are definitely not.

Do you go to Jeffrey at Self? I've been going for about 3 years, and I adore him!

Last I checked, Self does offer a 15% discount for new customers. Haircut will definitely be under $100 with a tip and for a salon in NYC, that's pretty cheap.

Yes! He's awesome!
His prices went up last time I was there (though it could be due to my length), but yes, it's still under $100, which is a lot less than the amounts I see for places like Devachan.
