One thing you’ll notice in certain parts of New York City is the residents tend to be well-dressed and well-groomed. Consequently, you might be tempted to give yourself a makeover, so you can look polished during your trip. You might want to look your best while traveling around town, but you’re better off keeping it simple.

Some salons charge over-the-top prices. At some top salons, a haircut could cost you as much as $300. You can also expect to open your wallet wide for a simple blow dry.
