Therefore, if you are in need of a haircut and if you don’t have any symptoms of the cold or flu, you are welcome to make an appointment. 

As a proactive convalescent plasma donor, in February, 2021 I received my second final shot of the Moderna vaccine.

Visits to my studio have become even safer now that I have been vaccinated.

My studio still follows all CDC recommended safety protocols, including face masks, hand sanitizer and UV sterilization of equipment.

However, in accordance with CDC regulations, already vaccinated customers are not required to wear a mask when only the two of us are present in my studio.

Additionally, I schedule a 15-minute gap between clients to air out and sanitize my studio.

Working in a private studio as a solo hairstylist, one on one with my clients, allows me to provide the safest environment possible.

To answer questions from my clients regarding current men’s hair styles, I would mostly agree with GQ magazine:

“The Best Men’s Haircuts to Try in 2020 Are Anything But Boring.  If you want to bring your hair into 2020, you’re going to grow it long, groom it less. Today’s best looks are natural and wild. Essentially, hair is finally fun again.”

“The ultra-groomed high fade heyday is over but that doesn’t mean one of the most popular men’s haircuts is dead altogether. One way to modernize the cut is to let the length on top wave and curl up as nature intended (if you sneak a curling iron in there, we won’t judge). Don’t be quite as precious with the sides either and the whole style will take on a whole new vibe while still looking just as great from the sides as the tidier version.”

“Big hair, long hair, let-it-do-whatever-it-wants hair is very much the grooming vibe right now.”

Click here to see my answer to the Common Question: What‘s the difference between a Men’s Hair Salon and Barbershop?

I’m quite often asked, “Should I go to a barber or salon?” The answer to that question depends on several factors. Just as you wouldn’t go to a cardiologist for brain surgery, you won’t want to go to a salon for a flattop. Likewise, a barber isn’t likely to be comfortable cutting a flowing pompadour. Choosing between a barber and salon, and finding a quality men’s haircut near you can be tricky.

The main difference between the two types of haircutters is that barbers are typically trained to cut shorter, traditional haircuts for men while salon stylists are trained to cut longer, fuller men’s styles.

With the industry trend moving toward more upscale barbershops and salons for men, the line between barbers and stylists is becoming blurred. Follow the tips below for choosing the right professional for your style.

Go to a barber if…

  • you’re looking for a short, traditional style haircut such as a buzzcut, flattop, fade, or military cut.
  • you’re on a budget. Most barbers are cheaper than stylists, so you may save a bit of money going to a barber.
  • you’re looking to keep it simple. Barbers will typically cut your hair in a manner that allows it to look good naturally, without a lot of styling product.

Go to a salon stylist if…

  • you want a change. During the consultation, a stylist will often make suggestions for a style that will better complement your features.
  • you are looking for a premium cut. Most stylists will come with a higher price, but as long as you choose a great stylist the cost will be well worth it.
  • you’re growing your hair. Stylists generally have more experience cutting and styling longer hair.
  • you’re looking for a more fashion-forward style. A stylist usually is more aware of current trends than a barber.
  • you want to use hair products. Stylists are more likely to be well-trained on the types and use of the best men’s hair products on the market.

The above guidelines are generalizations, and not every barber or salon stylist will fit entirely into each skill set. I am a stylist by trade, and have built a career exclusively cutting men’s hair. I am experienced in all men’s hairstyles, from a flawless short haircut, to a long razor shag, and enjoy performing each type of cut equally.

To choose the right professional for you, I suggest finding a stylist or barber with a photo gallery of his work similar to what you’re looking for. In short, that’s the best way to ensure you will find a great men’s haircut near you.

Client Feedback

“Sergei is my one and only hairdresser in New York City for the last 4 years. He always agrees to accommodate my craziest requests. Also he is really good at suggesting what would look good on me and what not.  He was available on a short notice plenty of times. He is not a morning person, but he would accommodate me even around midnight if I really need it.”

“My favorite haircut experience ever ! Sergei is an amazing hairstylist and took a lot of time and care while my cutting my hair. Since my hair is long, Sergei didn’t want to cut it short so he did my haircut in small steps, asking me if I was satisfied with the length every time. He really spent a lot of time on my hair and it came out looking amazing. He also gives great suggestions for hair care and is very knowledgeable.

Aside from that Sergei is really really friendly and that’s what made my experience so good. We had a great conversation and I was never bored during the hour that Sergei was cutting my hair for.

Bonus: Sergei also has a pet dog that you get to see if you are into that kind of thing. She’s super friendly and enjoyable !”

“I just had my first haircut with Sergio and just cannot say enough about how perfect the experience was.    The quiet, clean private studio is an oasis of calm.  Sergio is skilled and passionate about hair and after reviewing some possible style choices I immediately felt the anticipation of getting a great cut.   Superb attention to detail.   He is also a  great conversationalist and so personable that you feel you’ve spent time chatting with a friend by the time you leave.  Meeting his adorable dog Lola was an added plus.   After so many months of stress my appointment with Sergio was just what I needed – many thanks to a fine talented professional!”

“Sergei is brilliant. His home studio was very clean and he was an absolute gentleman. He was personable and knew exactly what he was doing. It is one of the best haircuts I’ve gotten in years.
There is no other stylist I could recommend more highly if you are looking for personal professional hair care. I am sure he is experienced for women’s hair and his celebrity client list was very impressive.
5 stars is not enough, Sergei is a 6 Gold Star professional and now my regular stylist. I am going to be a return client for many years to come.”
