Where can a man with longish hair in NYC go for a decent haircut?

I am a man with longish hair - not, like, ponytail length or anything, but definitely longer than average. Whenever I go to a barber, they act as though the fact that I have actual hair that actually needs to be cut is some kind of inconvenience to them. Sometimes they do an OK job, and sometimes they don't, but for some reason the "hey you've got a lot of hair," and "see you in three months" comments get on my nerves. (I always make sure to tip well, BTW, so I don't think this is the problem. I think they just don't encounter men with longer hair very often and it irritates them.)
So, it is time for me to get a haircut and I'm once again faced with this dilemma. I come to you, MeFi, in the hopes of recommending a barbershop/hairstylist in NYC that will:
A) Not be fazed by my longish hair.
B) Do an OK job of cutting it (doesn't need to be salon quality or anything, but just enough so that I don't walk out of there looking like an idiot).
C) Not charge me an arm and a leg. Definitely no more than $30, under $20 would be ideal.
I work in Midtown East and live in Brooklyn, some someplace in those areas, or at least in between them, would be super. Thanks!
