Hey New Yorkers, Want A Free Haircut?

Oh, hello there! You like free things, right? How about cool haircuts? What if I told you we were working with queer-owned NYC hair salons to makeover local members of the Autostraddle community, so you could get a sweet new ‘do at no cost to you?

Well, NYC area pals, it’s your lucky day! If you’ve been sweating a classic alternative lifestyle haircut, dapper fade, or some other cute queer coiffure, we want you to be a hair model for a future Autostraddle post.

Apply for a spot before June 30 by sending a current headshot, a photo of your dream hair, a brief introduction, and a note on your expected availability for July to [email protected], and let’s talk getting scissored.

No, not that kind.

Before you go! Autostraddle runs on the reader support of our AF+ Members. If this article meant something to you today — if it informed you or made you smile or feel seen, will you consider joining AF and supporting the people who make this queer media site possible?

  1. I started looking at alternative lifestyle haircuts and undercuts, and then I started panicking at the thought of getting a short/undercut. So maybe I shouldn’t apply.

  2. I just got mine cut super short last weekend… but I look forward to this post which will no doubt list all the stylists I should check out on the future. (Please don’t all be in Brooklyn.)

  3. Haircuts only? Because I prefer my hair long-ish, but I’m totally open to getting it dyed as gayly as possible.

    • Yeah! I similarly have mine cut all short-like already (though seriously, the way it grows, I don’t know… July might be reasonable) but would really dig to queer the color up.

    • Haircuts were my initial vision, but I could be persuaded to include some color — send me your info!
