During the first winter storm of 2018, I visited L. Ann Henderson owner of The Proper Image 326B West Chelten Avenue in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. 

She was my barber for many years (when I had hair). 

I really like the atmosphere in this barbershop where they stress positive values and a true sense of caring for the community.  In spite of the cold windy weather, Ann and Jason Murray, one of the original barbers and stylists were there, on duty ready and willing to serve. 

For a great cut or a natural style, see them or Pete Sullivan, Tyrone Cain, Daniel Wilson or Joshua Di Pietro. 

Ann reminded me that I was the first to welcome her to Germantown almost nine years ago. 

Call 215.438.1277 for hours or to set up an appointment. 

When you call, be sure to tell them you read about them in the Philadelphia Sunday Sun.  Subscribe to the Philadelphia Sunday Sun today.
