More Than Just Cutting Hair

After more than 8 years of experience with different barbershops, I was inspired by the hardworking people I have met to establish my own shop for residents of Washington, DC and other nearby areas. Sinatra’s Gentleman’s Barbershop is my way of helping others and giving back to the community that helped me get to where I am today.

My journey in this field began when I was young and getting haircuts from my own family barbers. As I watched these fantastic barbers my admiration and fascination grew. With every talented design and precise fade I knew I wanted to do the same. I needed to do the same. I dreamt a lot about it; dedicated a lot of hours practicing it and worked humbly until I obtained my license. Determined, I began to work my way up and eventually became a shop manager. Today, I am a master barber’s license holder and a barber license educator and I LOVE what I do.

 

I enjoy hosting and attending different barber social events where I can mingle with and learn from other experts in my profession. I also like using my knowledge and experience to teach others how to become effective and successful barbers. Some of those people whom I have taught are now proud owners of their own barbershops as well.

As a first time client I hoped for a pleasant experience and a gentleman’s haircut. My expectations were met several fold. Frank is a talented barber with exceptional skills and techniques. Before beginning he discussed approaches suitable to my condition, namely three months’ growth due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The result was a stylish cut worthy of one from a Hollywood salon for the stars! Sinatra would be pleased; no doubt he’d “start spreading the news.” - Brooke H.

I consider Frank to be a master barber. Mostly importantly Frank listens to what you want in a haircut and always offers meaningful input. Polite, informative and has a genuine passion for his craft. Most definitely worth the trip to see him. --Gary

Frank Always gives me the best cut and beard trim, he’s the best in the business. Never rushes anything and is always making sure he is doing the best job possible. I always know that I’ll be walking out extra fresh when I get to sit in his chair ! Thanks Frank and keep killing it !

After searching high and low for a proper barber who knew what they were doing, I came across Frank. Over the last two years he's elevated my style, given my hair the attention to detail I wanted, and has always been amenable to trying new cuts to keep me looking fresh. Every time I have an event work looking dapper for, Frank delivers. On top of all that, I respect him for his professionalism and work ethic, putting in the extra je ne sais quoi that reaffirms why exactly I rely solely on him for my barbering needs.

While searching for a top quality barber in the area, I was referred to Frank. Needless to say, after my first time with him, only a week ago, I will certainly be coming back. Not only is he a true professional, but also is a very kind man and fun to talk to. I will certainly be telling my friends about how awesome he is!!! -Chaz S

I will follow Frank everywhere he goes. He is the first barber I never tell what to do. He is a artist!! I just sit in the chair and he creates a wonderful masterpiece. I’ve been with frank for going on 6 years and I can’t wait to see what he does next.

I always say that Frank is the “Jay-Z of barbering”... However, I want to try to be discrete about just how good Frank is- because it’s ALREADY so hard to get an appointment with him!(!)

You won’t find anyone better than Frank. Massive attention to detail and truly a master of his craft. I promise you, you will not find a better barber to keep you dapper like my friend Frank will!

I have been in DMV for almost 4 years and had several expensive haircuts but it was not until I met Frank i realized what a proper haircut and beard trim entails. He is responsible for making me look the way I did on the day of my wedding and I dont think I will ever go to a different barber again. He not only cuts your hair but teaches you how to style your hair which is as important as a good haircut. Frank is simply the best barber in DMV and the haircut is worth every dollar.
