Go to Google, type “Barber Supply” and check what you see.
My observation is the following:
– A century ago barber supply was important. There were considerably important barber supply companies – like Koken Brothers.
– Something happened and those companies disappeared. Mostly.
– Maybe barber supply function became a sub category at beauty supply companies.
The good thing is today there is a reverse trend; as male’s grooming business started to grow, as mens-only barber shops started to grow in size, as the scale of the type of services given in barber shops started to increase in quality and quantity, we do see that barber supply companies start to regain their status within the industry.
