Barber Supply Terms to Know

Whether you are looking for a new barber or are thinking of starting your own beauty shop, barber shop, or hair salon, you will want to know about important equipment used in the filed. The following terms and definitions will help you discern between experienced, well set up salons and the traditional barber shops.

  • Hand Tools - A barber or beauty stylist's hand tools are the items he or she uses to cut and style a client's hair. This can include professional scissors, razors, straight savers, brushes, and blow dryers.
  • Chemicals - A barber's chemicals are the important tonics that keep those hand tools clean. Supplies such as scissors and combs are often kept in a solution called Barbicide to prevent the growth of bacteria and the spread of contamination amongst the clients.
  • Hydraulic Recline - Also known as barber chairs, these are specialized in that they can be raised and lowered by a foot pedal in the back. This allows the hair stylist or barber to bring the client's head to the appropriate height for trimming and styling.
  • Wash Basins - Wash basins are another very important piece of equipment to include in your barber supplies list. A basin allows the stylist to wash the client's hair to maintain sanitary conditions. Shops that automatically provide a wash and dry with a hair cut are often of a higher quality and caliber.
  • Barber Pole - If you're looking for a traditional barber shop that offers classic shaves and traditional men's hair cuts, look for a storefront that has a spiral pole that is red and white. A barber's pole often signifies this approach to hair cutting and styling.

    Barbers and salons have a long history. In fact, in many periods of history men did not attempt to shave themselves. Only the invention of the safety razor took shaving from the barber's shop to the home. Generally, a barber cuts the hair of men. A hair stylist works for either just women or for both. Beauty salons tend to specifically cater to women. However, the equipment and supplies needed are similar. Supplies, however, are not the same. Barbers require razors and shavers, especially as some masculine hair styles require shaving of part of the head. Shaving creams are also important. Both need shears, scissors and shampoos, however. Beauty salons also tend to purchase skin care supplies. 'Salon quality' shampoos and conditioners tend to be acquired from a specific brand to which a salon is likely to remain loyal, as are hair tonics. While many barbers trim hair dry, stylists tend to wash the hair before cutting. They may also use mousses and sprays to help the person's hair hold its style. Professionals working in these areas also wear clothing designed to be easily cleaned of hair. In terms of equipment, chairs and bowls are most important. Salons often have over head dryers. The traditional barber's pole sign is still used by many shops, although few are aware of its history and association with the minor surgery once performed by barbers. Brushes are, of course, important, as are towels for drying hair and robes worn by customers so that trimmed hair does not land on their clothes. All of these items are generally acquired from specialist distributors.
