    Re: Barbers shops

    I remember even in the 1980s the barbers my Dad used to take me & my brother to occasionally women cutting our hair.

    Normally the owner was cutting at one chair & a women at the other.

      I suppose to left-handed people, one's "scissors hand" would vary.

        I'm sure HSE would ban those if they haven't already been banned
        This is the main reason why I would never use razors to remove stubble - cue having to use toilet paper to cover up the cuts on the face.

        I would personally use scissors, and I am talking about in my own bathroom. I might ask for a shaver for Christmas to combat my fear of shaving.

          The barber's shop I mentioned in a previous post was quite dark and dingy. The shop was closed for a number of years when the guy retired, then it was taken over by a woman. She had it spruced up, and it was much brighter and cleaner inside. She was quite an attractive little blonde, so I had my hair cut there a fair few times--early to mid 80s. It was a shame as she didn't seem to get much custom, and one day I went along and it was shut up. She might have gotten more trade if she had cut women's hair, but she only did men. I was rather sad to see it close as I could tell she had put quite a bit of money into it. So far as I am aware, the premises were never taken over by anyone else, and it has been converted into a house.

                Local bus companies even hold female driver recruitment days lol
                My wife's cousin used to manage the truck fleet at a mine site in the Northern Territory (Australia), this was the trucks that drove down those big windy tracks in pits, he said they actually preferred women drivers as they were the more careful drivers.

                  They still do. Although they're not the same at the barber I go to, the blade part is just a normal razor blade that fits into a holder in the arm that swings inside the handle. We had two when I was a kid that had belonged to my grandad, used to love playing with those, and the (decommissioned) WWI Webley revolver we also had from his father (i think).

                        Come to think of it, we don't get too many female "barbers" do we?

                            This thread has just reminded me of that "Lionel Blair-cut" Harp lager advert from around 1993 which had Brian Conley in it as the hairdresser (or Barber).
