If men have become increasingly attentive to aesthetics over the centuries, everything also transpires from the furnishings of modern barber shops, increasingly avant-garde in equipment but with an inevitable retrò touch.
Like the fashion that cyclically returns, the ways of styling hair and beard make historical courses truly incredible and so in the last 30 years we have gone from the trend of the completely shaved man to the hipster man. Barbers are now delighted in treating beards with specific oils that not even beauty centers offer so many, and in fact the attention and care of the beard is even greater than that of the hair.
The barber pole history
Even in the smallest villages around the world we have seen new barber shops appear that mark the street with their tricolor poles, a clear recall of the barbers of the past.
In fact, in the Middle Ages the poles indicated the “bloodletting” service, with which it was customary to drain blood from the veins for therapeutic purposes. The white indicated the bandage, the red the blood and the shape resembles that of the instrument that customers had to tighten to make the veins more visible. And it was the barbers who offered this practice, together with the extraction of the teeth, even if Pope Alexander III forbade religious to undergo the procedure. Only after the birth of modern surgery did barbers stop implementing it, fortunately!
The barber shop furnishings between vintage and modern design
The style of modern barbers is often a mix between a vintage exterior and a great innovation in terms of furnishings and equipment: from the illuminated mirrors that allow barbers to be meticulous and precise in their cuts and shaves, to the hyper-comfortable seats that give the customer a moment of absolute relaxation at the backlit panels to create an atmosphere with ad-hoc graphics and images or offer services and promotions.
Suitcases for barbers on-the-go
The figure of the barber, however, is not only “fixed” in his barber shop but the itinerant professional who travels several times a day between customers’ houses and sets of advertising and backstage campaigns is increasingly in vogue, both in private and in fashion films, just like all make-up artists and hairdressers.
The Cantoni suitcase is a passe-par-tout that allows you to hold all the useful tools, from scissors to beard and hair care products, and if necessary to have a transportable workstation with an illuminated mirror and all electrical outlets for hairdryer, straighteners and razors. The chairs and armchairs with headrests facilitate outdoor work to favor the correct posture of the barber and the customer.ASF FOR A QUOTE AND GET 20% DISCOUNT ON YOUR SOLUTION
