Better Know a Frankford Business: Jahi’s Next Level Barbershop

When was the last time you needed a haircut? Maybe you need one right now?

Well, you should take a stroll down to 4422 Frankford Avenue and introduce yourself to one of Frankford Avenue’s long-time barbers, Jerry Ivy, who has been running Jahi’s Next Level Barbershop since 2004. However, this Frankford native has been cutting hair on the Avenue since 1995. He’s loved being a part of, and serving, the Frankford community for all of these years, and aims to use his store as a vehicle for giving back to his neighborhood.

Jahi takes pride in his business and thinks of it as an extension of himself – he strives to create a friendly, relaxing atmosphere full of good conversation and laughs. And it’s certainly inspired a lot of customer loyalty; he even has clients who have gone bald come back to the shop just to support him! Most of his clientele has stuck with him since 1995.

Perhaps Jahi has created such a special shop because of his own life history. He spent sixteen years in jail, from his teenage years in to his thirties. He takes those experiences with him everywhere he goes, and they have made him positive, focused on doing the best job he can, and determined to treat people the way he would like to be treated.

So go talk to Jahi – you’ll learn a thing or two about living a good life, and get a great haircut while you’re at it. He’s open from 9:30a to 6:00p from Monday through Wednesday, 9:30a to 8:00p on Thursday and Friday, and 8:30a to 8:00p on Saturdays.
