Joe Evearts

My name is Joe Evearts. I am a licensed manager-barber, and I am the owner of Joeʼs Throwback Barbershop. I have been cutting hair since the age of 16 — barbering has been my passion in life since the first snip of the shears! I enjoy getting to know my clients and creating the perfect hairstyle for them. Trends come and go, but friendships and the bonds built therein are my passion in this craft.

When I’m away from the chair, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love day tripping to the beach, NYC, or DC — you name it, we do it. I am blessed to have a loving wife and family who take great care of me! I also enjoy working out and spending time with my sons and stepdaughters, if you include our dog Max (FYI A HUNDRED POUND PITBULL lol). We are very much a Brady Bunch, three boys and three girls, with Max being the third boy!

My career as a barber is a work in progress. Iʼm 46 with 30 years’ experience, and I feel my best years are in front of me. Itʼs been a lot of fun so far, and I enjoy keeping up with the ever-changing hairstyle trends, as well as the old school ones! One of my favorite services to give are straight razor shaves. Itʼs pretty cool watching the stress of the day melt away as my clients enjoy receiving that service! Thank you if you took the time to read this. Have a

blessed day, I hope to meet you soon!

Ps: We have a Cat too! Her name is CAT! Pretty original, right! Lol

Sincerely, Joe the Barber

Matt Moran

My name is Matt Moran. My journey with barbering began at the age of 16. I had just recently moved to Ireland where my family was originally from before moving to Philadelphia when I was 2 years old! I found myself with a very strong interest in the world of barbering, from clean fades and line ups to the precise scissor work and all the different hairstyles that you can achieve through solid techniques.

Once I knew this was what I wanted to pursue, I began searching for a barbershop that would take me under their wing and show me how it’s done. I eventually got an apprenticeship at one of the best shops in Northern Ireland. During the time that I was with them, I gained a general understanding of how hair works and developed my own style of cutting! I found that clean fades, line ups, and natural looking blow-dried styles gave me the most satisfaction, and I eventually saw barbering as a true art form.

After my time in Ireland, I found myself back in Philadelphia with an opportunity to work alongside my childhood friend Jarred and the owner of the shop, Joe. And ever since the first day I started, I knew I wanted to be a part of Joe’s shop and the great reputation that he has. I found that there was a huge difference in the Irish/European hair styles and the American hair styles. After thoroughly learning and experiencing both sides, I started to bridge the gap between the two and used the best of both worlds. Cutting hair is a true passion for me, and I will always be willing to learn more about the industry and be constantly looking for improvement in my craft.

My name is Shelby. I’ve been a hair stylist for 8 years. Originally from Florida, I moved up here to Philly a couple years ago and I haven’t looked back. I enjoy fading, undercuts, and making people look and feel their best.

Sonia

Hi my name is Sonia for years I have wanted to become a Barber and last year decided that it was time to follow my dream so I decided to educate myself  to become a professional and I enrolled in school so that i can give the best of me to my client. I love the feeling that i can make somebody feel good about themselves  with just a pair of clippers and shears to me being a barber is the best job ever !

Brian

My name is Brian. I have been cutting hair since I was 16. Starting from family members and close high school friends, I took my talents to college while playing Division III college football for Lycoming College. While completing the coursework required for a degree in Business Administration, I was a 4 year starter playing Linebacker for the Warriors. With a strong passion for the haircutting industry coupled with the high demand of broke college students needing haircuts from the entire college, I successfully leveraged and managed one of the largest underground dorm room “barbershops” during my time in Williamsport, PA. I have a passion for helping people create their ideal image through barbering, which is fueled by an everlasting desire to learn and become better in the industry.
