“IMAGINE…

Imagine a barber shop. Men. Old newspapers. Uncomfortable chairs. Inexpensive prices.

Imagine…

Imagine a barber shop. Anyone. men or women. OPEN MINDED… Beautiful art. CREATIVE… Comfortable surroundings. CONSCIENTIOUS… Mid century modern furniture. HIP… Gourmet coffees. AHHHHH.. Home made biscotti. YUMMY… An old school record player playing the classics. FUN… Green friendly paraben free products. WHOA…Inexpensive prices. WHAT THE HELL…

Now imagine this not only being possible but a reality. A barbershop that is all of this and wait for it……

More. MUCH MORE!

Imagine…

Imagine a dollar from each and every service and a dollar from each and every product sold supporting local charities, local youth centres, local art programs and other local grass roots initiatives. Forever…

We know this is possible. We know this is right . We know this is a barber shop. We know this small ideal will lead us to bigger things. We hope this is something you will want to support.

This is now. This is the past. This is the future.

WE ARE HUNTER & GUNN AND AND WE ARE NOT YOUR FATHER’S BARBER…

WE ARE YOUR BARBER.

Barber Pole

From Wikipedia:

“A barber’s pole is a type of sign used by barbers to signify the place or shop where they perform their craft. The trade sign is, by a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, a staff or pole with a helix of colored stripes (usually red, white, and blue in the United States; often red and white in other countries). The pole may be stationary or may revolve, often with the aid of an electric motor.[1][2]

A “barber’s pole” with a helical stripe is a familiar sight, and is used as a secondary metaphor to describe objects in many other contexts. For example, if the shaft or tower of a lighthouse has been painted with a helical stripe as a daymark, the lighthouse could be described as having been painted in “barber’s pole” colors.

The origin of the red and white barber pole is associated with the service of bloodletting and was historically a representation of bloody bandages wrapped around a pole.[2] During medieval times, barbers performed surgery on customers, as well as tooth extractions. The original pole had a brass wash basin at the top (representing the vessel in which leeches were kept) and bottom (representing the basin that received the blood). The pole itself represents the staff that the patient gripped during the procedure to encourage blood flow.

At the Council of Tours in 1163, the clergy was banned from the practice of surgery.[3] From then, physicians were clearly separated from the surgeons and barbers. Later, the role of the barbers was defined by the College de Saint-Côme et Saint-Damien, established by Jean Pitard in Paris circa 1210,[4] as academic surgeons of the long robe and barber surgeons of the short robe.”
