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.
