If you need a fresh cut around the Temple area, you may be overwhelmed with the
various barbershops you see stretching along Cecil B. Moore and neighboring streets. If you’re looking for a spot that’s basically on campus, I highly recommend Diamond Cutz, which is located at 1000 Diamond St right by the Temple Train station. They even take Diamond Dollars!
If you want an authentic experience, you can try out Ron’s Barber Shop (Ask for Nafis) or
1617. If you want to venture into Center City, stop by the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. On the third floor, there is a husband and wife duo that has proved to be a hidden gem. They work out of a barbershop that looks right out of the 1950s.
Philadelphia prides itself on barbershops and each offers a unique experience. Explore a
bit until you find a shop and barber that fits your style.
