The barber took a little off the top, the thieves took a little from his pocket.

Three crooks ran off with the cash register from a Bronx barber shop — after one of the goons received a haircut, officials said Saturday. Cops are now looking for the freshly coiffed crook, who they identified as Ramael Pierson, 24.

He and two accomplices entered Alante Barber Shop and Beauty Salon on Westchester Avenue in East Morrisania at 9:42 p.m. Friday, authorities said. After Pierson got clipped, cops said, he pulled a gun on his barber and demanded his cash.

Then the trio grabbed the cash register, said police, who did not disclose the amount stolen.

No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at 1800577TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
