Women's Short Hair Specialist in New York

There's a very special hair salon located on 9th Street, in New York City's East Village: "Crops for Girls". This salon is very unique because it specializes in women's short haircuts. Actually there's a big sign outside the salon that says "SPECIALIZING IN WOMEN'S SHORT HAIRCUTS". This might seem odd because the salon owner could be putting of clients that are not ready (yet) for short hair. The opposite is true. The salon is successful and that success is thanks to the speciality: short hair!
Owner and hairstylist Michael Damico started cutting hair in 1985. Soon he realized that it was pretty boring doing almost nothing else but trimming and blow drying long hair. He opened his first own hair salon in New York City in May 1992. It was a bit disappointing to see that again most of his clients were coming to his salon for just a trim. Clients wouldn't let him cut their hair short. For such a drastic change they were going to big shot hairdressers charging $100 or more for a haircut. Michael was charging only $30 and was perfectly capable of creating the same gorgeous shorter haircuts like the expensive hairstylists did. That was when he decided to specialize in short haircutsfor women.

It is very exciting to start with a long head of hair, put all your creativity in it, and end with a stunning short haircut. Doing good short haircuts takes much more practice than doing long hair.

There are many reasons why you could decide to go short. The main reason of course is that the right short haircut will bring the most out of a girl's natural beauty. Too many girls are hiding their beautiful facial features behind a curtain of long locks. It is a pity to see how some girls are spending heaps of time washing and blow drying long hair while they would look much better with a short cut that is easy and quick to style. It is a fact that a lot of girls would look best with a short haircut. That's why most stylists cut a lot of hair off when you give them "carte blanche".
