Do you envy the effortlessly tousled hair of U.S. Royalty frontman Paul Thornley, or covet the cheekbone-grazing locks of musician Matthew Hemerlein? Then give their hairstylist, Ryan Hunter Mitchell, a call. He’ll come to your home or office and give you a fashion-forward cut for just $50. Although he’s a former Aveda stylist and Vidal Sassoon graduate, Mitchell doesn’t push pricey products or keep you waiting while he consults with other clients, an attitude that has won him a loyal following in D.C., New York, and L.A. He can execute the polished, conservative cuts preferred by our city’s lawyers and lobbyists, but his specialty is shaggy, low-maintenance ’dos. “In Brooklyn, I sometimes cut hair on people’s roofs, in the wind and the fresh air, and it dries wild and natural,” says Mitchell. “That’s my ideal.”
