HISTORY OF BARBERING The word Barber is derived from the LATIN word Barba,meaning beard. Another word derived from Latin, Tonsorial,
means the CUTTING,CLIPPING OR TRIMMING of hair with shears or razor;it is often used in conjunction with barbering. Archaeological studies reveal that haircutting and hairstyling were practiced in some form as early as the glacial age. They used implements shaped from sharpened flints,oyster shells, or bone.Animal sinew or strips of hide were used to tie the hair back or as adornment. Many primitive cultures believed in a connection between the body,mind and spirit.Some tribes believed that both good and bad spirits entered the individual through the hairs on the head and that the only way to exorcise bad spirits was to cut the hair. Early cultures practiced some form of beautification and adornment,whether from esthetic sense or religious conviction. The Egyptian culture is credited with being the first to cultivate beauty in an extravagant
fashion. Excavations from tombs have revealed such relics as combs,brushes,mirrors,cosmetics,scissors, and razors made of tempered copper and bronze. Coloring agents made from berries,bark,minerals and other natural materials were used on the hair,skin and nails.Eye paint was the most popular of all cosmetics,and the use of HENNA as a coloring agent was recorded in 1500 BC. The use of Barbers by Egyptian noblemen and priest 6.000 years ago is within Egypt's written records,art, and sculpture.
The barber MERYMA'AT is one historical figure whose work was apparently held in such high esteem that his image was sculpted for posterity.Every third day Meryma'at would shave the priests' entire bodies to ensure their purity before entering the temple. High-ranking men and women of Egypt had their heads shaved for comfort when wearing wigs and for the prevention of parasitic infestations. In Africa,hair was groomed with carved combs and ornamented with beads,clay and colored bands. Also in Africa,braiding was used extensively
with different patterns that will show tribal status. According to the Bible Moses live during the 12th and 13th century...During Moses lifetime BARBERING became available to the general population. During the Golden Age of Greece, 500 BC
barbering & hairstyling became highly developed art; THEY TRIMED BEARDS, this gave the status symbols. Barbershops became the gathering place for sporting,social, and political news.
