๐Ÿ’ˆ As a matter of Barber Factโ€ฆ. ๐Ÿ“– ๐Ÿ’ˆ Did you know ??๐Ÿ’ญ During medieval times, barbers were known for other services, besides cutting hair โœ‚๏ธ they also performed surgery on customers ๐Ÿฅ as well as tooth extractions and the practice of โ€˜Bloodlettingโ€™ ๐Ÿฉธ ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ’ˆ ๐Ÿฆท
Bloodletting eventually went out of practice, but the stripy poles outside the shops were a reference to the procedure.
It is believed that the red represents the blood and the white is symbolic of the bandages ๐Ÿฉธ ๐Ÿฉน
Another interpretation of these barber pole colours is that red represents arterial blood, blue is symbolic of venous blood, and white depicts the bandage. The red white and blue pole is more renowned in the USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
And in Europe we are traditionally more likely to see the red and white poles. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ—บ
