Most of the settlers got their hair cut at home. If someone was good with scissors and had hand clippers, that person would set up a small barbershop in their home. Later, a barbershop might have opened on the main street of the town. At the barbershop men could get a shave, shampoo, and haircut. This was a popular meeting place for men.
Many men would cut their hair at home, but some would go to barber shops.

Barbers need tools and hair supplies to cut hair including chairs for their clients to sit in.
