    nobody knows? i see people posting under topics about haircuts and they seem very informative about it....

    I'm asuming by barbershop you mean hairdressers....

    The number geneally means the grade that they shave to when they're using clippers. A Grade 1 is really really really short, and as the numbers get longer so does the hair. I dunno if it refers to milimetres or how long each number is but I know a grade 6 still isn't v. long because my friend recently had a 6 and I'd still describe him as shaven
