Barbers and Haircuts
German soldiers were expected to have their hair neatly cut at all times except when in active combat. One of the first things a front-line soldier did when he had the chance was to get his hair cut. Most units had skilled men who were barbers in their pre-service life who would cut hair and shave men for a fee. Men on leave would often go to get their hair professionally but before a big night on the town.
