This price includes a hair cut, face shaving, and washing your hair.

I went to a cheaper barber shop today. Hair-cut cost 1000 yen (one fourth of standard price) at that shop, because they did not serve face shaving and washing hair. They do not even have equipment for them. In 21 century, these new style deep-discount shops are increased. Even the ex prime minister used the 1000 yen cut. These shops are serious threat to conventional barber shops.

"Red and blue pole" is a sign of a conventional barber shop.
