I have been going to Joe for a few years now and have always been very happy with his haircuts. Joe is extremely professional, friendly and courteous. If he is running a few minutes late, which is very rare, he will shoot me a text to let me know he is running behind which I really appreciate. The barbershop also has a very friendly atmosphere and Joe makes everyone feel welcomed from steady customers to first time walk-ins. Overall a great shop and highly recommended.read more

Always get a great haircut here. I have always gone to Joe, the owner, so I can't speak on the other barbers. Joe has been cutting hair forever and can do any style you prefer. It's nice to be able to make an appointment and sit right down as soon as I walk in. I used to wait over an hour when I was going to another shop that doesn't take appointments, which was frustrating. Overall, this place is awesome, everyone is nice, and Joe gives some proper haircuts.read more

One of the best hair cuts I have had in the long time. Matt the barber who cut my hair was very detail focused and did a great job.

Joe was some how able to get me in same day for an appointment on a busy Friday. I sat down in Jarred’s chair and have never been more satisfied with a cut. More than fairly priced compared to most other spots in the neighborhood. No frills old-school barbering with modern abilities. Straight razor finish. Nice people, neighborhood clientele. I will definitely return.read more

Joe's barber shop gives you a kind a friendly experience. Phenomenal haircut! Does not rush you out of the seat like most shops. I will be a customer for many years to come!

Great haircut and great service. I called to make sure they were open and taking wall-ins but my call went to voicemail. By the time I hung up, they were already returning my call to tell me they were. As for the haircut, it was exactly what I asked for. Matthew was very thorough and a true craftsman. I will definitely be back.read more

Best damn barber in the city hands down. I looked forever for someone that knew how to cut my cowlick and still look good the next day, and thank God I found Joe. Haven't let anyone else cut my hair for almost 5 years now.read more

After trying out what seemed like all the barbers in the east falls, roxborough, manayunk area I was immediately sold the first time I went to Joe’s. That was more than a year ago and still getting superb cuts. The guys actually listen to you when you tell them what you want and once they get to know you the cuts get better.read more

We love it here, my son has been going there since he 5 years old, he only wants to go here, we tried other places they were not good. My husband goes here now too, that i had my son going there. Joe, Matt, Brian know what they are doing and they are very personable, no need to go anywhere else, love it here. The shop was just redone, we miss the tvs though.read more

My boys have been going there for over 2 years. We are Latino and their hair is thick. You wouldn't expect a barber in roxborough to know how to cut their hair but every barber there has! I also love Brian bc he takes his time to discuss their hair with me and showed by boys how to manage their hair. The boys came home feeling empowered! Esp since they are starting to care😉read more

Anytime I went to Joe’s I got a great hair cut. This time I took my 18 month old son, Joe there. Sue was great with him. Only second haircut and Joe (not barber Joe) didn’t cry once. I’m sure they’re all great with kids but recommend Sue based off our experience. Joe is one of the nicest and most professional people I’ve met and awesome to be around.read more

My son has been going to Joe's for a few years now and loves the place. I have been bringing my grandsons for the past 6 months, they don't sit still all the time. Last night Brian cut their hair, besides doing an amazing job on both of them he had the patience of a Saint and calmly refocused them to stay still and got the job done. His detail to each of their styles were phenomenal!! Best place around!! Kudos to Joe's Throwbacks!!read more

As a young man that cares about quality skin fades, this is the place to go in Philadelphia. Brian, Matt, and Joe all do an excellent job with your hair and beard.

INSANE!!! i’ve been to 5 different places to achieve that perfect platinum blonde. My hair had been super botched from other stylists who failed to give me the proper coloring, treatment and services. However, after making an appointment with Sue, I’ve finally gotten the color i’ve been wanting for so long!!! She is honestly the best. Super personable, careful and actually listens to what you need and want! She also taught me many tips and tricks on how to keep my hair perfect and healthy. Sue is wonderful and 100% will recommend to anyone I know. The best part is that I was able to schedule an appointment with her THE NEXT MORNING!! For a full root and color treatment!! Never have I been able to make a hair coloring appointment that soon before. Prices were super affordable, and appointments we very flexible. Also, the staff was so friendly and make you feel like family. Will definitely be making this my go-to place. Thank you!!!read more

Great place to get your hair cut for men, women and kids. This place is always clean and the people who work here are always pleasant and friendly. I would recommend Sue and the owner Joe to get your hair cut. I just got my son's (My son is 14 months old) hair cut last week and he looks so adorable. Joe did such a great job. Their prices are very reasonable too. My boyfriend and I travel all the way from Northeast Philly just to get our hair cut here cause we like how they cut hair. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to get their hair done or just a simple hair cut.read more

One of the best local barbershops in the philly area. I was pleased with the professionalism, atmosphere, and the result of the service that Brian provided. I have several close friends who spoke highly of the other barbers Joe, Matt, and Sue. I moved to the area last fall and am very particular with my appearance since I have african american hair. Brian exceeded all of my expectations and gave me an awesome experience at this barbershop!read more

I went this place for over a year and Sue did my hair and I absolutely loved!Last week I realized that Sue had left here so I thought maybe it will be good to give another barber a shot. I booked an appointment with Joe and I absolutely regret it. I was growing the undercut that I had for over 5 months now. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and he started working on it. He took the whole part that I grew, off and made it way shorter that it was before!I'm happy that he realized his mistake and made the service free for me. But I HATE the result, and still crying over it. I'm sure I'm not coming back to this establishment. I think bad communication and not involving the customer in the step by step process was the problem.read more
