Mr. of Rittenhouse is rated 5.0 out of 5 stars, based on 51 reviews!
I've been to Michelle twice now, and she has done an amazing job both times. She is flexible, patient, and listens while also providing her opinion. I'm really particular about my hair and during the past 6 years I've been on the east coast (NYC and Philly), both cuts from Michelle have been the best--impeccable.
This is my favorite place to get a haircut, period. Michelle is a saint and I always get compliments on my cuts.
After my poor experience with another shop in the area, Mr. of Rittenhouse saw me on short notice and took care of me. They made me feel welcome and did a great job, so this is my new spot.
(P.S.: I'm my own person and not "someone's friend" who is posting on their behalf. I know, I wonder that, too, about Yelp reviews sometimes. But if you read my other reviews, you'll understand pretty quickly that I speak for myself.)
Seriously the best place! Always treated well. Always friendly! Always the best! And trust me, with what little they have to work with, they do an amazing job!
Michele is sweet, kind and friendly. She is nice woman and a great barber. Prices are affordable and the shop is clean and easily accessible. Will certainly return again.
Both my husband and 2 year old come here. The experience is always lovely, especially for our little one.
I came here for the first time yesterday, and Michelle gave me a fantastic cut. Everything turned out the way I asked, and even though we were chatting the whole time, she worked very quickly. Plus, she gave me some great tips for styling my hair in the future! It's a great little shop, and I got a great haircut for a great price. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone!
I really liked this place, fast, clean haircut. I'll be going back next time for sure.
Really nice cut, I'm looking forward to coming back.
I have been going here for a few years now. Michelle and company do a fantastic job with all varieties of hair, quick waiting time and responsive to phone calls and lots of availability for appointments. Highly recommended.
Great cut! First time going and I'll definitely be back. Very meticulous and does primarily scissors cuts for better results. A+
Great experience every time! We have been coming to see Michelle for over a year and she does a fantastic job on my toddler boy. She is so friendly, professional, and does a great job with kids. Highly recommend coming here and especially seeing Michelle.
Went here because of the great reviews on here, and the great results from the pictures posted. They were able to squeeze me into their schedule, but when I am coming back I am definitely going to book an appointment. Wonderful staff that has the whole shop having a conversation. A good, honest business for sure. Cut wasn't too bad either ($25)! I will definitely be coming back; they knew exactly what I wanted and styled it perfectly.
MR of Rittenhouse is a friendly spot that I could not suggest enough, Michelle and the team are professional and accommodating. I've never been to a more open shop in the city my
Awesome people. Awesome service. Fast and most affordable in the area! Definitely my go to place. Ask for Michelle(my favorite).
I'm fairly picky when it comes to who can cut my hair. I'm no snob by any means, but a bad hair cut sticks around for a little bit. Michelle is one of the few people I trust not to screw it up, because I can just describe what I'm looking for and she understands it. She's also a very nice person, so you don't feel that awkwardness of having somebody hovering over your head unable to move in dead silence. She's more than willing to ask how your day was etc to keep the time in the chair from seeming like a awkward lifetime.
Kayleigh is just the best. Good prices, friendly, great cuts. I can't recommend enough. Also the beer : P
Awesome! Great location, great barbers, and great haircuts!
Always a positive experience. Staff is courteous and attentive. Michelle has been cutting my hair for months now and I've never been disappointed. Highly recommend.
Michelle is amazing! I get my boys hair cut with Michelle because she knows how to shape their Ave accordingly. Each one of my boys (I have 3) has a different shaped face and each has different textures hair - from super slick straight to super curly.
I started going here when I was a student, and it was still Hair on the Square. The place changed but (most) of the people didn't. I usually try to get my haircut by Michelle but have had great experiences with everyone working here.
They do such a good job, I still exclusively get my haircuts here even though I live in New York now - highly recommended!
i live in the neighborhood and have lots of choices. Mr. is high quality, affordable, and welcoming. i choose Mr. of Rittenhouse!
Went to Mr. Rittenhouse for the first time yesterday. had to meet my friends parents wanted to look fly af. The parents hated me, the relationship is over, I'm in a crippling depression, but my hair is fly af. 5/5 would choose hair over happiness again. Barber insults me regularly. Her name is Monique, would recommend. insults are targeted at my deepest insecurities, but Hairs tight. Threatened my genitalia, haircuts are great. Hair over balls, would do again.
Great haircuts, work with you and will squeeze you in. Are willing to whelp you find what you want.
Fantastic Experience, Best Haircut!
I arrived rather disheveled and Michelle was delightful and gracious, and gave me the best haircut I have had in years. The space is cool and laid back, and I did not require an appointment nor did I have to wait. I'll certainly return and recommend it highly.
Visited MR last week for the first time and got a haircut from Michelle. Getting an appointment was easy and fast - Michelle was extremely responsive. My haircut was great, and Michelle was very friendly and pleasant to work with. Highly recommended!
Been going here for awhile, best bang for your buck in Philly easily. Kayleigh and Michelle are both great. Great spot.
Michelle was outstanding. I have thick hair with many cowlicks so my hair grows in multiple directions. She gave me a wonderful skin fade. She also shampoos your hair after to get rid of the stray hairs. Highly recommend her as she has been doing this for 18 years.
When I moved to Philly, I took on the difficult task of trying to find a new place to get my hair cut. After a considerable amount of research, I chose MR of Rittenhouse. I'm really glad I did, because I've gotten amazing haircuts at a great price.
Michelle is awesome! She took me without an appointment and was super friendly. My hair is thick and straight with lots of cowlicks. I asked if she had any new haircut suggestions with my type of hair and she immediately knew what to do. I love the new cut. I will definitely recommend her to my friends.
I'd been going to SuperCuts for several years, and I was moderately satisfied with the same old thing, but with my hairline heading north I needed to do something significantly different, so I came here based on Yelp reviews. I told Michelle that I needed a change and that I'd leave it entirely up to her. She asked me some questions, we discussed a few things, and then she got to work, and I'm blown away with how it turned out! I love it!!! This is about a half hour from my home but I'll be coming back every 4-5 weeks! Thanks, Michelle!
This shop responds very quickly via the Yelp App for appt. requests. Michelle, does great work. She gives great men's scissor cuts. I imagine she's great with clippers or any cut anyone would desire.
Love this place! I have searched all across Philly for a go-to barbershop, and I've finally found it here. Always so pleased with the cuts, the availability for appointments, and getting to see Michelle. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for consistently high-quality haircuts.
Stopped in today got a great cut from Michelle, $30 plus tip well worth it, I will return
Libby (girl with crazy hair colors) has cut my hair a few times at MR and every time it has been excellent. Not only do I get a good haircut, but she is a blast and keeps you entertained throughout the entire visit. Will absolutely keep going back to MR if Libby is there!
My fianc doesn't have a Yelp account, but he asked me to post this for him. He says:
"I can walk in here and not even tell Libby how to cut my hair. She knows exactly what to do, and it's perfect every time. Libby also cuts hair for the Philadelphia Eagles, which I think is pretty cool."
One of the main reason's I keep going back to this barber shop is due to the outstanding job Libby performs during my haircuts. Her great attitude, honesty, and feedback is everything you should look for in a hairdresser/barber. She gives you excellent hair style tips and makes your experience at this barber shop comfortable and relaxing.
I've only gone to Mr. of Rittenhouse on Sundays, but I plan on keeping up my normal routine because i've had awesome experiences with the girl who cuts on Sundays, Libby. She always gives me a cut exactly in line with what I tell her I want. She's really cool to talk to which is important to me because awkward haircuts are well.....awkward. Would totally recommend Libby and the barber shop.
She has years of experience and expertise cutting and styling hair and face, and can provide a series of other waxing and aesthetic services. Without any direction, Monique transforms my look every visit. She has a skilled hand and will make your hair look better than it ever has.
The shop is clean and comfortable, and offers you a coffee, beer, or other refreshment for your visit. Monique is as fast or as slow as you'd like her to be and always carries a great conversation.
Thanks for all that you do to make us clients look fabulous.
Amazing deal with the $25 Happy Hour on Monday-Wednesday, even better service and hospitality!!! My friends and colleagues who also come here were more than happy after feeling skeptical after the change in ownership
I tried Mr. Rittenhouse for the first time last month. I left very satisfied. Kayleigh took a lot of time and paid a lot of attention to detail with my hair. It came out great. I would absolutely recommend and will be coming back. What a great new place!
I made a walk in to Mr. of Rittenhouse on a total whim after a meeting I was en route to was cancelled--what a fortuitous occasion! First off, Kayleigh is probably the most charming barber-interlocutor I've experienced in my 28 years on Earth. For my past few haircuts, I've been going to a "bro" barber, because the cut was decent and--at least at first--involved absolutely no talking whatsoever. I tend to find it unbearable (which probably says more about me than anything else). Kayleigh is a master of the form of haircutting small talk and relations.
However, any charisma Kayleigh has is second to her cut. (Especially considering I had and have no innate idea of what the hell to do with my hair, ever.) ... Instinctual, virtuosic, precise. A patient of mine described it as the "best haircut I've ever had," and I would have to agree. I've found my new spot for as long as I'm in Philadelphia. Thanks, Kayleigh!
I've been following Kayleigh around Philly for a few years now, she's that good! I made sure no one but her cut my hair for my wedding. I still get compliments from those pictures! I'm so glad to see and deservingly so, she has her own place now.
Very small shop with two chairs. $30 for a men's haircut and they take credit card. Had a very positive experience, Kayleigh was very attentive and would check in very frequently to make sure the cut was exactly what I wanted.
The best place ever! Michelle has been cutting my twin boys hair for months. She has patience and is great with children. Very accomodating with appointment times.
I used to be the type of person that wouldn't care where I got my haircut or by whom. That all changed around two and a half years ago when I received the best haircut and haircut experience of my life to that moment by Kayleigh of MR of Rittenhouse. Since then, I have not gotten my hair cut by anyone else and do not see that changing any time in the future. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are unparalleled; I consistently walk out of that place and think, "Wow, that's the best haircut I've ever gotten."
The business has changed over the years but only for the better. The interior is fully renovated with modern styling. Within the actual shop, the atmosphere is welcoming and casual. It goes without saying that I have recommended this shop to many people and will continue to do so in the future. If you want to get the best haircut of your life, head on over to MR of Rittenhouse. You won't be disappointed.
I started going to Michelle over a year now when she was part of the now defunct Hair on the Square. She is fantastic and has always given me a great haircut, even when I go through different hair styles. After moving from New York, I was concerned about finding another hair stylist - I had the previous one for four years. Luckily, I found Michelle! She has literally made any of my hair styles look good.
For those of you who loved Hair on the Square, Mr of Rittenhouse is the same location with many of the same employees, but underwent a facelift. If you want a great cut, ask for Libby on Sundays!
Have had haircuts with both Kayleigh and Michelle , back in the hair on the square days and when mr of rittenhouse opened up a few weeks ago , I followed along! Both extremely talented stylists who always do a great job! I always get showered with compliments immediately after each of my haircuts with them :)
Best haircut I've gotten in Philly! Kayleigh has been cutting my hair for 4 years now and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Webster's Dictionary defines 'haircut' as "an act or instance of cutting the hair". And that's not what I received today on this beautiful Friday afternoon. No, my friends...what I received today was an experience. The lights, the pageantry... WOW. Let's start with location. CAN WE TALK ABOUT LOCATION FOR SECOND????? Conveniently located in the heart of Philadelphia's most beautiful urban aromas, Mr. of Rittenhouse provides an abundance of Snips, Sips and Summer Sing-alongs. I enjoyed a Summer Lovin' beer (shous) and kicked back as Kayleigh (unsure if she spells it with a y or not) did her thang. And you know THE DANIMAL, I just told her to run with it fam. Anddddd boom I come outa there and allasudden I'm signing autographs, these hyenas thinkin im Ryan Gosling. For all my yelp fans out there, I got some some inside info for ya but don't go puttin' it on the news. Some things to look forward to:
- possible addition of a barbershop turtle named Mr. Rittenhouse
- Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men Impressions
- That "who knows who may show up" factor when it comes to Local Celebrities
That's all for me fam, shous out to Honey's too, now that's a breakfast!
