History of Barber Shops
Barbers are an ancient set of professionals: barbering services were offered in ancient Greece, Egypt, and Rome. Initially, barbers provided just hair and shaving services, but eventually they became minor surgeons and dentists as well, often extracting teeth, lancing boils, and letting blood to treat all manner of ailments. In the mid-1400s, however, as medicine began to advance into more specialized procedures, barbers withdrew from the medical services and focused on providing meticulous care of men's hair, including shaving, which was often required for religious or hygienic reasons as well as for style and status.
History Of The Barber Pole
The classic red-and-white striped barber pole was originally a symbol related to barbers’ surgical services. The accepted theory is that the origin stems from bandages – white sterile ones and red used ones – that would be laundered and when the wind blew, would twist around one another, creating the signature stripes. Over time, poles were used as more visible and reliable signage. In the United States, the blue stripes were introduced to demonstrate patriotism, and today poles can even be found with stars to emphasize that symbolism.
Our new location is 791 Broadway.
