The hair industry has had a roller-coaster relationship with the razor—one minute they hate it, the next, they love it. While the rest of the biz tries to pick a side, Bumble and bumble has championed the shear alternative since 1987 when stylist Howard McLaren joined the company and realized that razors could be used to create stellar geometric bobs. Since then, Bumble and bumble stylists have been crafting precise, choppy and piecey crops. Another advantage to cutting on the razor’s edge is that it creates low-maintenance styles that continue to look good even as they grow out. Cuts with a junior stylist start at $91, and there’s also a salon in the Meatpacking District so you never have to schlep too far.
