Michael Anthony is a unique hair artist well versed in both barbering and hairdressing. So aside from the obvious - men usually go to barbers....women to hairdressers....what’s the difference? Well, here’s a little tidbit. The term “barber” comes from the Latin word “barba”, meaning “beard”. “Barber” has come to be known as a person whose job is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style, and shave mens’ hair. Their “house” - a “barber shop”.But get this. In old days, barbers also performed dentistry and surgery. Lucky for us all....Michael Anthony only has to deal with “pulling teeth” when someone can’t decide on a hair color.
“Hairdressers” refer to anyone who changes a person’s image through a combination of cut and color. According to Wikipedia (the internet barbershop of information!):
“Hairdressing as an occupation dates back thousands of years. Ancient art drawings and paintings have been discovered depicting people working on other people’s hair. Greek writers Aristophanes and Homer both mention hairdressing in their writings. In Africa, it was believed in some cultures that a person's spirit occupied his or her hair, giving hairdressers high status within these communities. The status of hairdressing encouraged many to develop their skills, and close relationships were built between hairdressers and their clients. Hours would be spent washing, combing, oiling, styling and ornamenting their hair. Men would work specifically on men, and women on other women. Before a master hairdresser died, they would give their combs and tools to a chosen successor during a special ceremony.
