    IF you are a POC DON'T GO HERE they don't know the vibes!!! I went to this place to get a fresh cut after growing my hair out for about a year. I showed the barber a picture of how I wanted my cut (blowout cut with 3 inches on top) and he immediately said he would not cut it like that because HE didn't think that would look good. So he refused to give me the original cut I wanted and I decided to try to ask for a simple low fade on the sides and back and length on top so I can style it and showed him a picture as well. He agreed to this one then proceeded to give me no fade at all and left me 1.5 inches on top. I could have gotten better at SuperCuts.Service: Haircut

    I've never seen less conversation between barber and patron at a shop. What I did have to hear was Jay droning on about the week's political talking points for 30 minutes straight. You would think the total silence from the 4 patrons would be a clue but he was undeterred. If you go to the barber to have a nice relaxing cut and enjoyable conversation I would go someplace else. If you want to hear Jay rehearsing for the linguist olympics then you'll have a great time here.

    Franklin’s is a excellent barbershop, with caring barbers who are professionals at their craft, but also great to chat with, in an inviting atmosphere. I look forward to Tony cutting my hair for years to come, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a traditional barbershop in Philadelphia.
