Thanks. And the little eye rolling smiley just kinda set me off, because it is relevant.
I would love to hear what you think after you go there. I was just thinking about how I need to find a place. I am moving to area and I have two boys that I will need a barber for.

What part of NoVa are you in? Alexandria has a few and there are some sporadically through NoVa. I used to go to Another Level in Alexandria. After living in Tysons Corner for a while, I just upped my skill of cutting my own hair (if I was gonna risk it, might as well by free). If you are going to try another predominant race's barber I would go to a Hispanic one before a white barber. They are more like to have worked with kinky hair (more black Hispanics exist than people think) and they tend to have similar hairlines (shape-ups) as black patrons.

Another Level is one of the shops I was thinking of. There's another one just two or three blocks south of it on Henry Street (aka Route 1 southbound).

Actually, I was a regular there before I left NoVA. If you want I have a couple of barbers in the shop I'd personally recommend.

If you're near Manassas there is a barbershop dedicated to what you need. Being a white guy I can't vouch for it either way but they've been there for some time now. It's on Center Street in Old Town.

Yeah there is also one in the manaport shopping center across from the mall and one next to the new panda express on sudley manor road. I don't know how good the barbers are at these places but the manassas area has quite a few options.

I used to go to one on Queen St and Henry in Alexandria. Also South Arlington should have some spots.

When I lived in NYC the best barbers I went to were Puerto Rican or Dominican.
