They started out using the old fish net looking hair nets and spray
cans of lacquer to plaster and glue hair into place so it wouldn't
move, even in a hurricane.
In those days, guys came in

week, just the same as the women would do in a beauty salon.
Hair salons and hairstyling
became popular with men... in the 1970's, about the time of the
In fact the demand for
traditional barbers became so small that many traditional barbershops
went out of business.
Barbers either had to get into
a school and re-train for another line of work or go back to beauty
school and become hairstylists themselves.
Some barbers, like the
dinosaur, tried to hold onto the old way they'd always done things.
Their client base dwindled,
day by day, until they were no longer able to keep the doors opened.
Even their older clients began
to let their hair grow and needed a hair stylist rather than a barber.
Many of these former barbers,
of the 1960's, did decide to go back to school so they could
become accustomed to doing long hair styles for men, a thing that was
totally new and different to them.
They were trained in shampooing,
cutting and contouring men's hair to look longer and fuller.
A big benefit for them was that it
rescued them from the dark ages of $.95 to $1.00 haircuts and into
the more lucrative arena of hairstyling.
Hairstylists, today, charge
from $25.00 to $50.00 a cut for a hair cut or more for hair styling.
