a Dedicated Approach to Personal Refinement. 

A Whole New Experience.

Our Vision

Part speakeasy, part urban retreat, DAPR Grooming Parlour is a haven of tranquility for the socko man, in the heart of Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. 

Step into our sumptuous space and help yourself to a drink in our penthouse; enjoy the views of the street below from our floor to ceiling glass windows, and take in the hustle and bustle of the city around you. Soak in the calm sanctuary of our urban oasis.

Each of our bespoke barbers’ chairs has been hand-crafted in Osaka, Japan by the master artisans at Takara Belmont, making them the most luxurious chairs in the City of Brotherly Love. Sit back in them, as you melt into a classic hot shave or an award-winning trim.  Let the day slip away as you luxuriate in our Yume Chair and receive the only Tokyo Style Head-Spa treatment in our region.

About the Stylist

JOSH DEMARCO is a Philadelphia based hairstylist and educator. He is currently opening Philadelphia’s first high-end men’s salon in the prestigious Rittenhouse neighborhood of Center City, Philadelphia. Josh has just been given the award for “Best Grooming” in the United States by Cosmo Prof, the largest beauty distributor in the world at 2018’s “Licensed to Create” award show.

Though he is an accomplished stylist, he has found that there is a gap in the Philadelphia market for luxurious men’s hair and grooming services.

Josh has been exposed to a multitude of the world’s finest salon education opportunities, which has helped him craft his own unique skills behind the chair and lead to his dynamic career. He is a devoted artist who is passionate about helping others achieve success through education.

In 2015, 2016 and 2017 Josh was a finalist in Behind The Chair’s “#OneShot” Awards (largest hair industry awards show in the world), and named one of Philadelphia’s best men’s hairstylists by Philadelphia Magazine. In 2016 Josh won WELLA’s Regional Trend Vision Awards, along with Sebastian Professionals “What’s Next Awards” People’s Choice award, which was a testament to his dedication and obsession for his craft. In 2017 Wella Professionals North America honored Josh with “The Best Digital Content” Award. Shortly after Estetica Magazine chose Josh to represent North America in “The Mentor: Best Emerging Talent” competition where he won gold, becoming the first American to achieve this prestigious award. Josh specializes in both men’s and women’s haircutting and color.
