What It Is to Be a Philly Bloke

It’s never ending, not something we can quantify. It’s a constant pursuit of learning and getting better. Along the pursuit, making a positive movement and difference towards bettering the lives of others, the people around us and yourself, represent what I call a Philly Bloke. How to accomplish this is a challenge, but with the right direction and focus we will be achieving small successes every day. Your Style, Your Character and your Will, own it because no one else can.

At Philly Bloke we understand that the studio experience is just as important as the cut. We bring together talent, experience, style, and service in a unique environment for the modern man.

My passion for this industry continues to grow as my training is extensive with such companies as Vidal Sassoon, Oribe, Toni & Guy, Bumble & Bumble, Arrojo and Vaughn. I bring my experience and passion to Philly Bloke with my vision being to create a place where the modern man can kick back and relax, knowing he is going to have a excellent experience.

I love the detail that men’s grooming entails and for that reason, my attention to detail is my first and top priority. I am here for you, the client, who wants to look and feel their best. The classics will always transcend the times which I feel are my go-to styles. From James Dean, Cash and Dylan I love it all so what ever suits you I’m willing to help create the essence of what I call a Philly Bloke.

I learned at an early age that I had a natural talent for art and an eye for detail. Art has been a big part of my life including music. I’m a drummer and I grew up around music. I started training to cut hair at a young age and it has been a passion of mine ever since! In my free time I am an avid poker player and I work part time for the World Poker Tour.

I strive to grow my skills and polish my techniques daily to provide my customers the best quality service possible. I bring my experience and creativity to Philly Bloke as well as being a bit of a perfectionist which shows in everything I do!

There has always been something that intrigued me about a Barber Shop. I think it’s the conversations and the lasting relationships that are built. So I decided to follow my passion and make a career of it, which brings me to Philly Bloke. I strive for complete excellence and will do what I can whom ever is in my chair to put a smile on their face knowing they look and feel better about themselves.

I specialize in clipper fades, shape ups with the razor and also scissor work. I feel I bring to Philly Bloke a timeless way of cutting with always learning to stay fresh and new. I look forward to the opportunity to make a difference.

Activism & Local Community Support

Philly Bloke Supports Local Artists

Philly Bloke Supports Local Artists

Brian Reinert is a young emerging artist born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. From childhood, Brian has always had an interest and appreciation in all forms of art and officially began his artistic career in 2009. Being self-taught, Brian pulls his inspirations from artists like Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol.

Brian likes to consider himself to be somewhat like Bruce Wayne. During the day he can be found in a suit and tie working in the executive recruiting field, but at night he can be found in his “bat cave” creating his next work of art and saving the boring white walls of the world.

Brian’s paintings can be found in homes and businesses throughout the East Coast and beyond from Boston, to Pittsburgh, Washington DC, to Houston, and even the Netherlands!
