  • A Short History of the Barber Pole:

  • The barber's trade traces back to the bronze Age (circa 3500BC), even mentioned in the Bible. Barbering was introduced in Rome in 296BC and barbers quickly became both popular and prosperous. Their shops were centers for daily news and gossip. It is from the Latin word barbe, meaning beard, that the word barber is derived. The origin of the barber's pole appears to be associated with the service of blood letting. The original pole has a brass basin at its top representing the vessel in which leeches were kept and also represented the basin which received the blood. The pole itself represents the staff which the patient held onto during the operation. The red and white stripes represented the bandages used during the procedure, red for bloodstained bandages and white for clean. The bandages would be hung out to dry after washing on the pole and would blow twist together forming the spiral pattern similar to the modern barber pole.
