Description:

A barber or hair stylist that cuts hair needs something to wipe hair off the back of the neck and face of their client.

A barber towel is great for dusting hair off of a client and can be conveniently stored under the barbers station on a hook. In the barbering or hair styling business it is vital that everything be sanitized and kept in clean environment. Everyone unfortunately dosen't always follow this rule. As of today some businesses use the brushes or dusters to remove hair from the client, which makes the responsibility to the workers of sanitizing the dusters unconventional. In some states the powder duster cannot be used because it can't be sanitized. The barber towel can be washed, is affordable and can be stored on a hook out of the way or can be place in a plastic container with a lid on it and put on top of the work station. As described in the drawing, the Barber Towel has three major parts, the hanging loop which is used for storage, the handle which allows a easy grip to hold the towel and lastly the actual towels which do the work of dusting.
