There is a barber shop called "Three eight barber shop" which had been founded for 70 years since the 40s of last century. It was reported that at the very beginning of the barber shop it was called "The Scarlet Plum", and also it was a state-owned barber shop. At the peak of this barber shop it had 33 hairdressers and all of them are females. Zhou Enlai and his wife Deng Yingchao, the vice of president of women's federation of China at that time, said with smile when she saw there were only women staffs in the barber shop: "Here only has female staffs, why don't we call it three eight barber shop?" Since then the name of the shop had changed and been used ever since.
