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!!!
