Barbers cut, trim, shampoo, and style hair. It is also not uncommon for a barber to provide hair and scalp treatments, shave male customers, and give facial massages. Barbers are expected to keep their work area clean and their hairdressing implements sanitized. They may make appointments and keep records of hair color and permanent wave formulas used by their customers.
