2001 Best Men's Haircut

Angela Stern, Alexander’s

At a time when prices have as much to do with the name of the hairstylist as with the hairstyle itself, Angela Stern is a refreshing anomaly. She gives people exactly what they ask for—nothing more, nothing less. Stern is as comfortable with her clients as she is with a pair of scissors. Her notably down-to-earth banter makes the cutting process fly by. That, coupled with earthly fees ($50 for a cut), just increases the value of what you came in for: a good, solid haircut that lasts.
