Because right now I look like I did it myself with pinking shears.

Where in Manhattan could I get my hair cut next week?

I'm hoping someone knows a good walk-in/no appointment needed salon. When I lived in New York I usually just went to Jean Louis David (don't laugh, they were always perfectly fine*) or someplace near where I lived that wasn't that great and I probably couldn't find now if you paid me. I'm possibly going to be in the city next week and I recently got a sort of whack haircut that I would like to have remedied while I'm there.
I'd like to find a place that isn't trendy or edgy or pretentious, but where the stylists know what currently looks fashionable. And I'd like it to be inexpensive, say no more than $50 for the whole thing. If that even exists. I haven't lived there in years.
My cut is nothing unusual - past my shoulders, all one length except for long side-swept bangs and a few little layers/pieces framing my face - but the last person who did it made it needlessly complicated. I just want to have it trimmed and sort of re-shaped or cleaned up. (And blow-dried.) My hair is a pain but not, I think, too difficult - it's thin and fine and inconsistently wavy, and I always wear it blown straight.
*And maybe they still are, in which case if anyone knows please tell me. They get pretty bad reviews on Yelp now though, so I'm thinking they may have declined over the years.
