A barber (from Latin barba, "beard") is someone whose occupation is to cut any type of hair, give shaves, and trim beards. In previous times, barbers also performed surgery and dentistry. Don't worry, Joe wont try that on you. In more recent times, with the development of safety razors and the decreasing prevalence of beards, most barbers primarily cut hair.


Although many barbers may still deal with facial hair when requested, in American and Commonwealth culture most barbers specialize in the simple cutting of men's hair.
