ChicagoFilter: Where to get a great (mens) haircut in Chicago?

I think it's about time I stopped going to random places for mediocre haircuts and actually spend the money to get a good one. Any suggestions?

Note that I'm a lawyer, so it needs to be someone who can do something at least sort of conservative, but my taste definitely runs more to the Jim-from-the-Office end of things than, say, to the Rick Santorum end of things. Young and casual is good.

I'm a girl, but the woman who cuts my hair is amazing. I was out one night at a crowded concert with three other women and two men who all go to this woman for hair cuts. Note: we all have different styles and different types of hair. I left my group to go to the ladies room. As I was heading back, I noticed I was being tailed by a young woman. She apologized and said, "I'm following you back to my friends. I know we're standing next to you and your friends because you all have really great hair."

Anyway. Nancy Anselmo at Langtree on Belmont at Southport. 773.883.1881

State Street Barbers
They give you a beer while you wait. Well, at least in Boston.

I've never seen a bad cut from Milio's - 959 W. Belmont, just west of the Belmont Red Line stop (773-549-1461). Six or seven of my friends are regulars, men and women, and we love it.

Assuming you really want a hair cut and not hair styling, go see these guys at the Belmont Barbershop. Really terrific and very friendly.

I live in Oak Park and I've had a good experience with the barber shop on Oak Park Avenue. It's a hole in the wall, one barber. He's a great guy, always friendly and does a GREAT job. I too am very finicky about my hair. Hope that info helps.

Frank's Barber Shop, Van Buren and Dearborn. Ask for Lisa, and tell her that I miss her and love her (platonically).

Oh, it's $25 and extremely competent.

I've always had good result at Big Hair. Scottie does me right. Added bonus: you get to look at all the hipster chicks while you're there.
