Barber – what do Barbers actually do?
It can be summarized in a simplified way: The barber is the original name of the popular “barbershop” and is the place where men have their hair and beard trimmed or get shaved.
All services related to men’s hair, especially in the head area, are the responsibility of a barber. In addition to haircuts, chemical treatments such as the coloration and perms, he is specially trained in facial services such as shaving, beard care, beard trimming and contour shaving.
Here men can feel comfortable and be sure to be understood.
Herr Feldmann’s motto: Rediscover old values!
All the above noted services for men are planned with craftsmanship, implemented to perfection with due time, extensive advice and, above all, with attention to the detail.
For each of our 3 pillars Hairdresser | Barber | Wig sales, we offer a separate area in our shop. For women and men, we have a separated section where they stay among their selves and that is for a particularly good reason. For wigs we offer a private room.
Under Wikipedia the barber is described:
A barber is a person whose occupation is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style and shave men’s and boys’ hair or beards. A barber’s place of work is known as a “barbershop” or a “barber’s”. Barbershops are also places of social interaction and public discourse. In some instances, barbershops are also public forums. They are the locations of open debates, voicing public concerns, and engaging citizens in discussions about contemporary issues.
In previous times, barbers (known as barber surgeons) also performed surgery and dentistry. With the development of safety razors and the decreasing prevalence of beards, in Anglophonic cultures, most barbers now specialize in cutting men’s scalp hair as opposed to facial hair.
In modern times, the term “barber” is used both as a professional title and to refer to hairdressers who specialize in men’s hair. Historically, all hairdressers were considered barbers. In the 20th century, the profession of cosmetology branched off from barbering, and today hairdressers may be licensed as either barbers or cosmetologists. Barbers differ with respect to where they work, which services they are licensed to provide, and what name they use to refer to themselves. Part of this terminology difference depends on the regulations in a given location.
In the early 1900s an alternative word for barber, “chirotonsor”, came into use in the U.S.
Different states in the US vary on their labor and licensing laws. For example, in Maryland and Pennsylvania, a cosmetologist cannot use a straight razor, strictly reserved for barbers. In contrast, in New Jersey both are regulated by the State Board of Cosmetology and there is no longer a legal difference in barbers and cosmetologists, as they are issued the same license and can practice both the art of straight razor shaving, coloring, other chemical work and haircutting if they choose.
