Norelco Home Barber Shop: “Daring new idea”

As promised: more barber pole packaging.

The Norelco “Home Barber Shop” was an electric hair clippers set, package in a plastic, barber pole shaped case.

“Daring new idea. Home Barber Shop. Norelco shaving quality in a motor-driven barber-trimmer. 3 guide combs. Red and white barber pole package stands out on any shelf. Already a proven seller.”

Below: a detail of Norelco ad that appeared in a 1967 issue of Life magazine.

Some other brands, of hair clippers were also sold in barber pole shaped packages…)

This 1960s Charlescraft “Home Barber Shop Kit” came in a cylindrical (barber pole style) tin canister.
