Subject: What is a "Comber"?

I found this occupation in the parish church registers. What is a Comber?
I never knew what a "paterfam" was either. This was in the burial records after the persons name. That means he was the head of a family.
I also didn't realize that they had hairdressers back in the 1700's. What exactly did they do?
