Barbers provide haircutting, hairstyling, facial shaving, permanent waving, hair coloring and facial services to the general public, but primarily to men. Some shops also may provide a licensed manicurist that does plain manicures only.

The Board of Registration of Barbers protects the public through regulation of barbering in the Commonwealth. The Board oversees all barbers, barber shops, and barber schools licensed in the state.
