Description

Whether you want classic and blunt-cut, asymmetric and edgy, or layered and flirty, Alfie Weil will wield his fancy $600 Japanese scissors and give you a bob with almost surgical precision. If he were the boasting type (which he isn’t), Weil could brag that he’s just two degrees removed from Vidal Sassoon, who pioneered perfect geometric cuts in London in the ’60s. Thirty years ago, Weil trained with Sassoon’s Brit colleague David Danes, who opened a tony salon on Madison Avenue where the bob was practically an art form. (“Well, hair is a medium,” remarks Weil.) Nowadays, Weil is back in his hometown, expertly shearing heads of both sexes in his own all-white, airy salon. “A simple, clean bob is a timeless classic,” he says. “Although simplicity is actually pretty complex — hair has its quirks, so getting a clean line is not that easy.” Is he a perfectionist? “There’s no perfection in cutting hair,” he replies. “You just have to have patience.”
