YEARS IN INDUSTRY: 9
Andrew Sherman is a 2nd generation Master Barber and owner of The Philadelphia Barber Co., LLC in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is where he calls home now, but his original stomping grounds were in central Pennsylvania, immersed in the culture of his father's barbershop. Since attending the Barber Styling Institute in 2008, his skill set has grown dramatically and he has achieved recognition for the outstanding quality of his haircuts. Andrew's success has been primarily due to his reputation behind the chair, and it was his attention to detail that led him to rise along side some of the best barbers in Philadelphia.
Working in the city for the last 8 years, he realized that Philadelphia was an untapped market for high end, modern barbershops, and working closely with fellow barber Kenneth Cairns, opened The Philadelphia Barber Co. in the Fall of 2017.
