Coming Soon: A Barber Shop at 153 Ludlow

Posted on: June 16th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

With altogether five hair salons to its collective name, upper Ludlow Street is poised to welcome another chop-shop to its ballooning roster.  Tommy Guns and Pimps & Pinups pretty much bookend the bustling stretch between Stanton and Rivington, while Kropps and Bobbers, Cocoro, and Ringo tip the scales closer to Delancey.  Yup, it’s crowded down there.

And now, three months later, there’s a hair replacement for the departed In God We Trust at 153 Ludlow Street.  Interior renovations have been ongoing since the boutique jettisoned, but more conclusive clues as to the forthcoming occupant arrived only within the last few days.  A handwritten piece of oaktag in the window indicates that an as-yet-unnamed barber shop is on the way.  Peeking behind the clutter, it appears as though two barber chairs are now in place.  There’s plenty of work in the forecast here…

Meanwhile, will this become a cheap alternative to the glut of price-gouging salons on the block?  After all, it’s being advertised as a “barber shop.”
