    Default Going from Angela Davis Sized 'Fro to A TWA: What Barber/Salon in NYC?

    Hi everybody!

    So, I have a big ol', around 12 inch 'fro that I am ready to let go of. I did the loc thing for a few years, then combed it all out (That took 9 DAYS). I am about to (try) to start a serious exercise routine and just want my hair really short, no fuss. I have super-duper-extra-terrific-expialydocious kinky hair (Nigerian follicles! Woo!) so unless it is about a half inch short, no pic has ever survived a comb through.

    ANYWAY, I need a recommendation for a barber/salon that will give me a really great cut in the Brooklyn/Manhattan NYC area. I am a little leery of barbers, because the last time I had a TWA, I went to a local barber and he kept on giving me this hard-edged dude cut! I kept on asking for a soft, feminine TWA, but nooooo, hard edges all the way! My last straw was when he gave me a ceasar with a part! He had his own ideas and was determined to put them on my head, LOL!

    ANYWAY, this is all just to ask about a good place to go. Thanks, peoples!

    The barber I visited for the first time is good, but he is located in the Bronx. I'll send you his information off-list.

    Thanks for all of the info. In the end, I went and have continued to go to De Lux Gallery here in Fort Greene, Brooklyn:

    http://www.deluxgallery.com/delux_na...r_contact.html

    They specialize in loc care, but they do have a wonderful barber named Trevor. He is such a gracious man and always gives you exactly what you want. If you don't know what you want, he will still hook you up nicely. It is $20--I think if you want a wash and conditioning treatment after it goes up to $30--and I usually tip an extra $5. While it may seem pricey for a barber, I only have to go see him once every 3 months, because my hair holds the shape well, his cuts are THAT good.
