Would You Get a Haircut at a One of Yelp's Worst-Rated New York City Barber Shops?

VICE has a funny series titled One Star Reviews in which host Taji Ameen visits the lowest-rated spots on Yelp to see if they're as shitty as the Internet says, or if they're just misunderstood. In this recent episode, watch as he visits Alex Barber Shop in Manhattan Valley for a shave and a haircut.

After months of neglect, it’s time for Taji to make a visit to the barber. Luckily for him, One Star Reviews is covering the cost by visiting one of Yelp’s worst-rated barbers in New York. Alex Barber is a father/son run barber shop whose reviews vary from threatening behaviour, to not working well with kids, to hidden costs. Will Taji leave with a look that works for him?
