In 2012, it seems a barbershop can't even make the short list for recognition if it's not handing out cold beers to customers when they walk in the door. A Greenpoint barbershop meets that delightful standard, but it has more practical claims to our "best" title as well. At $20 for a clipper job and $30 for a scissor cut, it's priced reasonably. Plus, it specializes in "classic American haircuts." What that means to the hardcore bikers who run Tomcats Barbershop is pompadours and the sort of greaser-rockabilly styles that rely on copious amounts of pomade. (If you're looking for pomades and waxes, the place has a dizzying selection.) But Tomcats isn't restricted to biker chic—it's also versatile enough to handle more contemporary styles. If you're planning on visiting anytime other than an afternoon in the middle of the week, it's advisable to make an appointment.
