Welcome to Supa Star Hair Salon!

After years of being an actor, I've decided to change career paths and become a hair salon owner.

This is my new business.  It's called "Supa Star Hair Salon!"  The name is inspired by all of my AnD friends.

(Only Phil,Andy, and Pat can have free haircuts..everyone else have to PAY..)

This is my first cutomer..

Stop crying kid..what do you expect for $3.99....Here's a high five for being a good sport!

I was cleaning up the shop after a long day of work and look what I found...

WTF is that?!

Ahhh...it's my new pet....COUGAR!  (BTW She's not real)

Question: Can anyone tell me the origin of the red,white, and blue swirls that became an icon for hair salons across the world?

While sometimes the colors vary, the barber pole was actually a medieval tool for a medical procedure where "leeches" were used. The top of the pole had a bowl for the leaches, and the blood came out the bottom. Since barbers were also originally surgeons, the red & white colors stood for the bandages. White for clean, red for the soiled ones; and they were sometimes hung on the pole to dry. Hence, it became symbolic with the profession, but replaced later with a pole painted with the colors as the symbol. Later, to differentiate barbers and surgeons in England, white and blue were used for barbers, while red and white for surgeons. However, France and US picked red and/or blue for country homage in colors... [source: wikipedia ;) ]

Yeah, but you can still use it to practice on before you try shaving a real cat. You know, work your way up to people so as to avoid another unfortunate mistake like $3.99 boy... =D
