I've recently decided to let my hair grow, but the transitional phase is quite messy. I'm fashionably impaired, so I don't know what I want to do with it (nor what is even possible).

I'm looking for a hairdresser that is an expert at selecting a men's hairstyle that really compliments me. The style selection is as important as the haircut itself. It may sound vein, but I want to look my best, and I'm willing to pay for it.

I've searched this forum and so far it looks like Emerson Joseph, Roosters, or the Aveda Institute is what I might try, but I am wondering if there is something more appropriate for what I am looking for.

Thanks!

As a guy who prefers a stylist to a barber, I've been really happy with 90 degrees salon since moving down here. Feel free to PM me and I can give you the name and number of my stylist there.

Tell me where you live. If you live near me, I will recommend my hairdresser. She is great. I have never looked so hot.

I've walked out of Roosters without getting any service. If you don't look like 'their kind of client', they will discourage you from staying.

Emerson Joseph is pretty good, depending on your stylist. The last one that I had left in their downsizing a few months ago.

Now, I'm curious too. What is Rooster's type of clientele?

Roosters and Emerson Josephs are more old fasioned, clean cut, "man's-man" barber shops. This probably isn't what you're looking for if you're trying to grow your hair out. Depends on the look you're going for, though.

What you probably want is a stylist, someone who cuts with scissors, not electric clippers. I'm still searching for a good one myself.

If you don't know what kind of cut you want, I recommend looking over mens fashion/model blogs until you find something you like. Magazines like GQ/esquire/mens health are another source but are generally more watered down and boring.
