Meet the Philly Bloke Team
My passion for this industry continues to grow as my training is extensive with such companies as Vidal Sassoon, Oribe, Toni & Guy, Tigi Academy, Bumble & Bumble, Arrojo, Reuzel and V76 by Vaughn. Also extensive training other industry professionals as a Network Educator. 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 an 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 whatever suits you I’m willing to help create the essence of what I call a Philly Bloke.
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, whoever is in my chair, to put a smile on their face knowing they look and feel better about themselves. I have traveled for extensive training to further my knowledge and craft at companies such as V76 by Vaughn, Vidal Sassoon, Arrojo and Reuzel.
I specialize in clipper fades, shape ups with the razor and also scissor work. I look forward to the opportunity to make a difference.
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! I have traveled for extensive training to further my knowledge and craft at companies such as V76 by Vaughn, Arrojo, Reuzel and Tigi Academy in Soho, NYC. In my free time, I am an avid Poker player.
I continue to strive to grow my skills and polish my techniques. I look forward to the opportunity to provide my customers the best quality service possible.
I think there is a real art to cutting hair. Whether it be through music or painting, art has played a huge role in my life since childhood. I fell in love with the art of cutting men’s hair and being a part of an ever-growing industry. When you’re in my chair, I want to know about you and build a relationship. I want you to feel relaxed and be one of the better parts of your day.
I specialize in fades and driven toward the challenge of any out-of-the-ordinary style (mowhawks, mullets, ect). Whether you are a young or seasoned bloke, I want to make you feel your best and translate your personality into a style tailored specifically for you.
What Our Customers are Saying
Matt — “a new lid each time I visit”
Simply amazing! Never thought a ‘MAN SALON’ existed, despite my long search. Where else can you shoot the breeze with a cool dude, get a personalized hour long session, watch ESPN, listen to cool tunes, grab a Heineken and just CHILL. Sit in the chair and let Eric do his thing. Sure, you can lend guidance, but I never knew what to say in the past. Now, I let the master craft a new lid each time I visit.
Kevin — “best shop I’ve ever visited”
Eric is something special. I’ve had my hair cut a number of times at Philly Bloke and left completely happy each time. The shop is modern, clean, and the ability to schedule appointments via the PhillyBloke.com web site makes Philly Bloke the best shop I’ve ever visited — hands down.
Michael — “talking Philly Bloke up to all my friends”
I’ve been talking Philly Bloke up to all my friends! I used to go to a barber shop in Philadelphia which was rated in the top five in the country (by Playboy magazine). Not only has Philly Bloke exceeded the service as my previous barber shop, it has severely exceeded my expectations!
