Salon Or Barbers Shop

Mon Nov 15, 2004 4:09 pm

Can a Barbers shop be reffered to as a Salon/Saloon.It is out here.
I remember the Wild west used to call the bar a Salon.
What is the correct term.

People use Barber or Salon here in the US.

The typical barber is a gruff middle aged man who owns a small shop for years.

The typical hair stylist is either a chubby woman or a gay man named Antonio who speaks with an accent  Laugh out loud.

On the serious side:both SALOON and SALON can have other precise meanings, but inthe context of this discussion:

a SALOON is the (stereo)typical name for the local pub in the Wild West

a HAIR SALON (maybe at a time you could say saloon, but not normally now) is a place where all kinds of hair services (cuts, washing, perming, coloring etc) are done.

a BARBER SHOP is generally geared toward male clients and specializes in shorter haircuts and shaving. The word "barber" has to do with the latin word for beard - "barba".

Some places may be called "mens' hair styling" or just "hair styling" but seem to be more barber shops than salons.
