The history of Barber goes back a long time, it appeared in the BC period in Egypt. This shows that men’s beauty needs appeared quite early. They are considered celebrities and Barber is seen as a noble profession of society.

In the Middle Ages Barbers began as surgeons and dentists. It is because of their ability to use razors skillfully that they also work as barbers.

Initially, the Barbers used rather rudimentary tools, which were brass blades. So many great male hairstyles were born from there. That’s why I really respect the Barners at that time.

Besides, the Barbers always have a very distinct ” barber ” style. It can be said that these barbers create models and inspiration for men when they come to cut. With a classic close shave head, neatly trimmed beard and unique tattoos, made the difference of Barber in the past. This style is also pursued by today’s Barbers, although not as popular as before.
