Jun. 6th, 2008 - Tonsorial

ton·so·ri·al [ton-sawr-ee-uhl, -sohr-]
–adjective of or pertaining to a barber or barbering: the tonsorial shop.

[Origin: 1805–15; < L tōnsōri(us) of shaving (tond(ére) to shave + -tōrius -tory1, with dt > s) + -al1]

tonsorial. Unabridged (v 1.1). Random House, Inc. (accessed: June 06, 2008).

Bob loved the Coen Brother's movie The Man Who Wasn't There if for nothing more than its portrayal of the tonsorial arts. It begins with an overview of the various hairstyles of the time. Bob took copious notes when he saw the film; someday his Rogaine treatments will start working and this will be valuable information.
