HISTORY OF BARBERING
The word "barber" comes from the Latin word "barba," meaning beard. The barber's art of shaving beards and cutting hair is an ancient tradition. Razor blades have been found among the relics of the Bronze Age. Barbering began with primitive men who believed that good and bad spirits entered individuals through the hair. The spirits inhabited the body, and that the only way to drive the bad ones out was by cutting one's hair. The earliest records show that barbers were the medicine men and the priests of the tribe. In many tribes, the barber was the most important man in the village. Throughout history hair has been very important socially and religiously, since many ancient superstitions revolved around it.
