In the middle age, a barber was called a barber-surgeon not because of his skills when it comes to the hair but because he also engaged in surgery, leeching, bloodletting etc hence earning him the title of “barber-surgeon”.
But now a barber is a person “whose occupation is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style and shave men’s and women’s hair. A barber’s place of work is known as a “barbershop” or a “barber’s” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barber ).
In modern times, the term “barber” is used both as a professional title and to refer to hairdressers who specialize in men’s hair. Historically, all hairdressers were considered barbers. In the 20th century, the profession of cosmetology branched off from barbering, and today hairdressers may be licensed as either barbers or cosmetologists. (
Basically, what attracts people to a saloon is the barber, his customer relationship and skills in barbing. But aside having these in place, the treatments received during and after a shave and ambience of the saloon goes a long way in making customers want to come back for more.
