HISTORY OF BARBERING
"Shaving and barbers used to be synonymous. In fact, the very term barber comes from the latin,barba, which means beard. Nowadays, we forget that every man has a beard. Webster gives two definitions of beard:'(a) the hair that grows on the chin, cheeks and around the lips, especially of a man;hence a mark of virility; (b) this hair ...when worn long or trimmed in various shapes.' "
"On the average, a mans's beard covers one third of a square foot, and consists of about 15,500 whiskers." pg. 89
