For some people, the idea of going anywhere but a barber shop for a men's haircut still sounds outlandish. However, many establishments now combine barber and beauty services under one roof. This makes them more efficient in terms of costs. Styling stations, equipment, and the building itself can serve people as the need demands, rather than according to gender or desired hair style. Therefore, many barbers now work in these establishments instead of men's-only barber shops.
