I've been a customer of Kevin Horne, a stylist at City Barber since 1996. Through those years, Kevin hasn't "missed a beat" in keeping with the changes in my style, and my hair. He's a professional! And he's a gentleman! If any of you reading this review are interested in a first class styling, I recommend Kevin. He's a barber, but more importantly, he gives his customers exactly what they need: attention to detail! I recommend making an appointment. And don't forget to tell Kevin that, Barry sent you!read more

Jay Smooth is all about the name. Smooth cut, smooth conversation, smooth time. I had a great overall experience with him. He’ll ask you how you midway what you want to do with how the cut is progressing. He knows his stuff and fades well on the sides and back! Highly recommend when going in, ask for Jay Smooth.read more

City Barber is the spot. I have been a frequent customer for over 9 months now and have never left with a cut I didn't like. Great location right across from jewelers row. Make sure to request Jay Smooth for your services, great conversation and will hook you up with the best fade in the city.read more

Great spot in the cut of center city. Jay took care of me at the shop. He did a awesome job. The spot is very relaxing. Has a very traditional feel with new school talent. Definitely a 5 star spot.

Consistently great work and well priced. Haven't gotten a bad cut here in 4 visits with 3 different barbers. Strongly recommend Jay, but they're all solid in my opinion. They listen to what I'm looking for and get it right every time. I've been to 5 or 6 other shops in the city and this is the only one I'm confident will get it right. No nonsense, just a good cut.read more

Kevin has been my barber of choice for close to ten years. He has consistently been the epitome of exceptional customer service; always committed to providing a quality experience. He does his level best to accommodate my schedule and is always ready and prepared when I walk through the door. I have absolutely have no issue paying a premium for the level of service he provides. Strongly recommend Kevin to any man that appreciates making personal grooming a priority.read more

I had a fantastic experience with Kevin this past weekend. I have been searching for a good, consistent barber at an affordable price that didn't have any flairs and I think I found my spot. Kevin took a lot of pride in his craft by not only taking his time, but by going over sections of hair again if it is not fully to his satisfaction. He even had a large LED light to brighten up the shop so he could make sure I was getting the best cut possible. The location is very accessible and the prices are more than fair for the service you are getting. I will be back for my next cut soon.read more

After investigating several reviews of barbers in the area, I went to City Barber for my first-ever haircut in Phila. $35. Kevin was a true professional at his craft and he has 100% gained my future business. Can't recommend enough.read more

Have had both Kevin and Jay Smooth and they’re both great people who gave great cuts. Also did bookings and it appears you can book on crazy short notice so maybe that’s the issue based on the no-show review or two but I booked with like 10 minutes notice and got in my first time. It’s expensive, but haircuts in the city are expensive unless you’re going to Chinatown or Supercuts or something. Old City also consistently has an extra cost on goods and services due to the work crowd and population so it shouldn’t be a shock (prices are posted online and in shop), but in that vein location has been great.read more

I’m losing my hair in spots up top and came prepared to shave my head , he blended it so nicely you can barley tell! Great fade and beard trim. This is the spotread more
