Get a Haircut on Monday

Why are most barber shops, hair salons closed on Monday?

For as long as you can probably remember, salons and barbers have been closed on Monday.

Most are actually closed on Sunday and Monday. While Sunday isn't a shocker - Monday is a unique off day for the industry.

There's actually a couple of reasons for it.

Firstly, most shops are run by private owners, and the Sunday-Monday off days give them a true weekend, since closing Saturday would be a bad business move.

Secondly, some cities had a form of union for barbers that lasted through the mid-20th century.

The union pushed employers to close on Sunday and Monday so that barbers could have a full 2-day weekend - which included being able to go to church - and no one would have a competitive advantage.

Although the unions aren't really around anymore - the tradition has stuck for many shops.
