The Siani family has been cutting hair in the Philadelphia area for almost a century. Ralph I opened the business in the Germantown neighborhood, circa 1922. His son, Ralph II, moved it in 1981 to the nearby older suburb of Glenside. According to Ralph III, who currently runs the show, the secret to the shop's longevity is "giving the community what it wants." One of the main services that locals are demanding: dye jobs. "More men are doing it these days," says Ralph III. Many regulars hide their cuts under Phillies hats. The spot is known as a fan hangout and memorabilia covers every inch of wall space. There are even section seats from the old Veteran's Stadium in the waiting room.
