BARBERS & HAIRDRESSERS of the past

 Barbers in 1300s Europe were city gate-keepers.
       
BARBERS  &  HAIRDRESSERS
    
1500s barber scissors, large photograph
 Hair-cutting scissors were considered doctor's tools,
although number 8 is just silly.

1500s Barber tools, large photograph
These 1500s Barber tools each had some purpose.
 
BARBERS  &  HAIRDRESSERS
   
Commercial human hair 1884
 Human hair was in demand commercially in 1884,
for wigs, belts, necklaces and rings.

 
BARBERS  &  HAIRDRESSERS

From an 1885 catalog, this seems odd to us now

BARBERS  &  HAIRDRESSERS
    
1889 hair clippers, illustration from a catalog of barber supplies
1889 hair clippers. Something similar was
sold in the 1960s so parents could save money by
cutting their own kids' hair. Kids were told
not to complain.

1960s hair salon, color photograph
 A 1960s women's hair salon would be an
experience in itself, and that's something you could
say about the whole decade. If we add to that the
tedium of everyday life, we get the general ambiance.
