Best/Cheapest Men's Hair Dye In New York?
September 27, 2012 2:07 PM   Subscribe

Looking for a place in NYC where I (a dude) can get good, natural-looking hair coloring for about a hundred bucks.

I would normally do it myself but it's the tricky business of going from darkish brown to blonde and I'd rather just let a professional handle it.

I find that the best, cheap hair color comes from the likes of the Paul Mitchel Academy or the Aveda Institute.

You get a student who is being strictly supervised by a Pro taking care of things and paying bargain basement prices. It will take all morning, plan for that, but the outcome is worth it.

I've never done color at the Aveda Institute, but I've used them for haircuts and other services forever. Highly recommended.

Best answer: You want Riah. They are tiny and unknown and awesome. They use this stuff. Ask for Devon- she's the queen of going blonde. She only works part time, so you might have to wait a week or two, but it's worth it.

Oh forgot to add- I don't know exactly what their men's prices are, but it runs me about $90 for a full head color and I'm female with long hair. For NYC that's batshit cheap, so I can't imagine a man-head cut going much over $60.

In my experience, Aveda is fantastic for hair color.

Response by poster: Riah was great!
