The colors of the actual barber pole were echoed in the two signs. One sign was curved to resemble the actual moving pole.

The actual barber pole of olden days is slowly fading into memory. Just a hint with a plastic replica adhered to glass.

An actual mini-barber pole outside a suburban barber shop. The parking is free, but note that it is clearly signed as being, "Private Property."

Signs read: "Hair * Designs! for Men&Women" and "Wigs 4Sale." Also note that a hair cut cost only $3.00 in 1976.
