Located on Broome Street in the Lower East Side, you’ll find Orchard & Ludlow, the salon that doubles as an art gallery. Each barber and stylist at the luxury salon has been an expert of their craft for years and compiled a detailed list of questions first-timers or regulars to a barber shop or a salon should be asking their stylist.
  1. “What do you think?” Requesting your barber’s thoughts on the trim or cut you’re receiving is important because they are licensed in haircare and know what they’re doing. As our own stylist, Sara Grace Judge put it, “We see things differently than our clients do and we know what would look best on them. Stylists and barbers will always do what their clients request but asking our opinion helps you.”

  2. “How long have you been cutting hair?” This question can make you feel a lot more comfortable being seated in a barber’s chair as it gives credibility to the person treating your hair or beard.

  3. “Who taught you what you know?” This question goes hand in hand with the aforementioned one. As a client, you will feel more at ease getting a hair treatment if you know your stylist’s history and where they learned their craft.

  4. “What’s the best way to maintain my hair?” This is a frequently asked question we get at Orchard & Ludlow as clients hope to maintain the look they received from us.. Knowing what routine to follow and what products to incorporate in it is key to keeping your appearance up to par.

  5. “How often should I come back?” The answer to this question will vary depending on the service you get from us or elsewhere. At Orchard & Ludlow, our clients can get haircuts, trims, beard care and color treatments and a stylist will inform them of when or if they need to return.

  6. “How should I prepare for my appointment?” As a client it’s always best to arrive with clean hair with minimal product. Especially with Covid-19,try to make things as easy as possible for all parties involved and come with washed hair.
