Be it your first date or your first job interview, it’s always important to leave a good impression. That said, keeping yourself groomed is something you should do even on a regular basis. As do manners maketh man, so does kempt hair.

You may have been scrimping on $5 haircuts, but it is fair to splurge occasionally and spoil yourself with a pampering gentlemen’s barber experience. These barbers will keep you looking suave and dapper – and maybe even to help you look more like a towkay than your boss.

This doesn’t have to come at sky high prices – while some of such barbers out there charge $70 or more, we’ve compiled a list of the ones that charge $45 and below.

Perhaps this floral design may not be the most appropriate choice for your job interview, but it is definitely worth a shot if you’re feeling bold – especially if your school or workplace doesn’t have a dress code. Otherwise, stick to a slick modern pompadour cut and you won’t go wrong.
