Whistle’s motto, “Look less ugly,” certainly seems promising. The salon doesn’t offer much—haircuts (from $60 to $80) and colorings (start at $75) are the only items on the menu—but its hairdressers execute the limited services extremely well. Stylist Tom is known for turning bang-haters into side-swept goddesses—and he actually explains how to re-create the look after washing it at home. Bang trims are free for clients (as often as necessary) and just $10–$15 for new patrons.
