HAIR STYLIST: Brooke Dorothy, American Mortals
Having perfected her skills with American Crew, this tatted-up ally can work a men’s haircut like nobody’s business. Her client list is full of gays, so she’ll regale you with Steel Magnolias–worthy salon gab, and grin and bear it when, say, you get the urge to sing Whitney as she snips. (Guilty!) 727 Walnut St., 215-574-1234, americanmortals.com.
HAIR SALON: Laurentius
It’s known for its sleep décor and starry clientele of fluffy Rittenhouse socialites, but out (and cute) owner Laurentius Purnama and his coven of stylists are equally adroit with the male of the species, no matter what your hair type, quality or age. There’s a reason this place has been featured in every glossy magazine (Elle, Glamour, etc .) going. 815 Christian St., 215-238-0764, laurentiussalon.com.
