Then he isn't shaving himself, which means he must shave himself, which means he must not shave him self, which means he must shave himself.....
Perhaps there is another barber in the village and many of the villagers get shaved by him. This being the case our barber could keep his promise to shave everyone who does not shave him/her self including himself, because he too gets shaved by the other barber.

Who shaves the barber?
There is no absolute answer. Ok, so the barber will shave anyone that does not shave him or herself and will not shave anyone else, The barber can not shave himself as that would be someone who shaves themself. Anyone in the village that shaves or does not shave his or herself could shave the barber.The barber may not shave.

In a village, there is a barber who shaves everyone that does not shave himself, and no one else.
Who shaves the barber?
In this case, there is a very simple way to circumvent the paradox:
The barber is a woman!

this is possible, cause the barber could be a connected twin.
