Could be the best in Philadelphia. Called in the morning and they were able to fit me in. Only had to wait a few minutes. Had a complete haircut and the cost was totally reasonable. Cool building in Old City. Will be back.read more

I searched for a new Barber and chose Blokes because their cuts are consistently excellent. The funky space with its genuine jukebox are icing on the cake!

The whole experience at Bloke’s is top notch! Steve is the man, while Gionna, Duke, and the rest of the team make you feel right at home.I just wish they would get a Bose boombox or something similar so that every now and again (maybe the first Friday of every month) customers could choose the music played in the shop... the jukebox only has so many songs!read more

Best cut in the city... not only is Blokes an awesome establishment with a killer jukebox and free beer (or water), the barbers are top notch. My two go-to's are Duke and Stephen both give an amazing cut and also pay close attention to details. My latest trip Stephen did an excellent fade and beard trim while keeping the conversation legit and giving me styling tips so I would look topnotch every day. As soon as I walked out the door I was scooping up compliments all the way back to my place.read more

The best cuts, great vibes, "free" beers, friendly staff, great location, and available high quality products for purchase EASILY justify the price tag. My local spot with no desire to change.

I’ve been to Blokes about 6 times. Mike cuts my hair and I really can’t say enough how awesome I feel about the service there. The first meeting I was transitioning from another barber who I saw for years so there was that awkward feeling of whether or not it was going to be good. But it was great. Mike’s a great dude, he listened to what I wanted and gave me that. He’s easy to talk to and the experience was super chill. I’ll go back to Mike at Blokes as long as I can.read more

This place is pretty cool. By chance I was passing by and saw an empty chair and decided to walk in and there was an opening. Very friendly vibe, they offered a beverage right away. They asked for my coat and hung it up in the back where there's a few couches and some guitars to mess around with. There's various items for sale and to browse while visiting.read more

I usually go to a place like Hair Cuttery, but I get more consistently good haircuts here, and like the vibe better. Only a little more expensive, and supports a local business.

I've been here a few times with my boyfriend for his routine haircut. The staff are warm, friendly and awesome at making their clients feel welcome. They have complimentary phone chargers available, along with ice cold Lionshead beer. If you find yourself waiting, take a look around at the various items that's available for purchase. So don't let the price stop you from coming in because it's not just a haircut, but an experience.read more

I've been getting my hair cut at Blokes for over a year now and Duke and his team do an amazing job. It has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone looking for a regular place to get their hair cut or even if it is just a walk-in from out of town.read more

Duke is the man. Hard-working dude That unfortunately has felt the impact of the pandemic. Every time I see Duke it’s a great conversation and a fantastic haircut. I definitely want to leave a very positive review as he is putting in tons of work, Remains open and you will never drive by and not see him with a pair of scissors or clippers in his hand. Great guy nice shop, and that’s my barber.read more

The atmosphere is rich, fun and I enjoy my time waiting for my appointment or looking at the interesting items for sale.Duke is enjoyable to speak with and a master at cutting hair.I highly recommend booking an appointment at Bloke's.

Emily did a great job with my haircut! In the history of all my cuts, nobody had ever gotten it *just* right in the front where the hair parts to the side. And I love the way it lays back. She nailed it.read more

Emily did a terrific job with my hair today. She did a skin fade which was the first time I ever asked for one and it was tremendous. Exactly what I wanted and couldn’t have done a better job. She really is a perfectionist and made sure every detail was up to par.read more

Love this place, not as pricey as I had anticipated, and I got a great cut. Also Duke is a really cool guy. If you are into guitars and/or blues music, he has a metric tonne of great stories of gigging around and playing with legends. I can't recommend this place enough!read more

Its difficult to find a barber that really works for you. I have tried several barbers in Philadelphia, but after finding Blokes, I would never go anywhere else. Duke is a great guy (even though he supports Manchester City) and a very talented hairdresser. He is open to hearing your ideas and giving feedback if needed and then providing exactly what you want. The space is clean and the staff are helpful and genuinely friendly. 5 stars without a doubt.read more

This was my first short haircut after over 3 years of long hair, and they treated me well. If you're about to make a drastic change, ask for Sandra. She's been in the business for 20+ years and knows what works for you.read more
