Barber & the barber shop

Barber is derived from the Latin word barba, "beard". In modern days, the term "barber" is used both as a professional title and to refer to hairdressers who specialise in men's hair.

Barbering was introduced to Rome by the Greek colonies in Sicily in 296 BC, and barber shops quickly became very popular centres for daily news and gossip.

 In addition to haircutting, hairdressing and shaving, barbers performed surgery, bloodletting and leeching, fire cupping, enemas and even the extraction of teeth.

Barber shops were influential at the the turn of the 19th century in the United States as African American businesses that helped to develop African American culture and economy.

Barber shop

A barber shop is a place you can retreat; a haven, an escape from the cares of the world. It is a place to relax and get an affordable, high-quality haircut by a trained professional. Despite the economic recession in 2008, the barber shop industry has seen continued positive growth due to these very reasons.
