Best of Boston

2005 Best Haircut, Men's

Sandy Poirier, Shag

Some say you should never trust a bald barber, but there’s an exception to every rule. Poirier, the tonsured and tattooed owner of this year-old salon in South Boston, is ours. He uses a straight razor and skills acquired during a two-decade tour on Newbury Street to create the kind of just-got-outta-bed looks that hipsters know can only be crafted by expert hands.
