Small, attractive salon. They do good hair and do not charge overly much (for NYC). The artiste himself, diminutive Chris Dasig, will advise your stylist on the best strategy for cutting your hair, if he doesn't cut it himself.
Secret trick: sign up to be a hair model for Chris' junior stylists. You get a great cut, and instead of paying a lot of $, you just need to spend a little more time in the chair (student cuts take longer). Totally supervised by Chris himself - relax.
