probably cuz all the good barbers don't have to worry about business and the rest are struggling

i just got my haircut today and noticed all the licenses on the wall and i guess i didn't realize you needed a license to cut hair which seems really weird, of all the things to regulate

cutting hair seems like the best candidate to let the market work itself out, i mean, you don't need a license to sell cars, booze or cigs and those k*ll hundreds of thousands

then i found this




“Well, let’s look at the situation as it was in America at the end of the 1800's. Up to that time, barbering was predominantly an African-American occupation, especially in the south, where nearly all barbers were black. Before the Civil War, these were mostly slaves, of course. Barbering was looked at as a lowly service occupation.”

Mike points out that, after emancipation, black barbers were well situated to take advantage of their finely honed skills and the relationships that they had built up in the white community. Barbers were among the first ranks of black citizens to accumulate some degree of wealth.

But black barbers had to stick to cutting and shaving white men. Whites were not comfortable having blacks sit in the next chair over, and possibly being shaved with the same razors. So, black barbers were exclusive to either whites or blacks, although there’s speculation that white shops sneaked some black customers in after hours.

Another issue in play after the Emancipation Proclamation was that many whites were not comfortable with newly-freed slaves hovering over them with straight razors. Nothing ever happened, but it must have been in the minds of some white customers reading about slave rebellions in Haiti.

Since the Civil War, and up to the turn of the century, blacks generally had the best skills in the barbering profession. That is until a lot of non-black barbers started pouring through Ellis Island. As they started to set up shop, they found that a lot of black barbers were already established.

So it was about this time that they started lobbying states to establish licensing boards, to promote barbering as a respectable skilled profession and ostensibly to fend off disease and infection.

“They pretty much wrote the rules to target black shops, including requirements for barbers to attend formal barbering schools. No school, no license, and the first schools were not open to African-Americans”, writes Mike Holmes.

“Within a generation, the industry was totally flipped on its head as black barbers were forced out of white areas. Barbering went from being predominantly black to completely segregated, except in pockets of the south where the old ways were held tightly.” Alabama recently became the final state to require a barber license.

Cause the whole subscription service fad is getting out of control and the bubble will burst soon.

Like these food subscriptions that sh*t on “spending too much money on takeout” in their ads but their subscription plans COST MORE than takeout and you have to store them and then cook them yourself which costs money on your utility bill.

I even seen one the other day on FB for a damn WATCH subscription. They had different tiers starting at $50 a month and they send you a watch every month. Total scam as I looked up some of the watches advertised and they sending you a watch you can buy elsewhere for $20 and charging you $50 a month for it. I think it said Jamie Foxx was one of the investors/brand ambassadors

You pay for the service each time you use it.. a subscription you pay a flat fee and get a set amount of services (multiple cuts a month).
