The history of barbering

In the 900's to 1400's - Barbers of the middle ages not only practiced shaving, hair-cutting, and hair-dressing, they also dressed wounds and performed surgical operations. They were called barber-surgeons.

In the 1400's to 1700's - In the fourteenth century in England, barbers formed into two classes: those who practiced barbering and those who practiced surgery.

The barber's company and the surgeon's guild were united by law in 1450. The law was enacted so that no one during surgery should practice barbering and no barber should practice any phase of surgery except the pulling of teeth.

In 1745 in Europe a bill was passed separating barbers from surgeons. When the barber-surgeons separated, the barber kept the pole as their identification. The pole consists of red and white, or red, white and blue stripes. Red for blood, white for bandages and blue for veins.
