4 months later it had got out of hand and after a weekend of itching and munching on the beard I nearly decided to shave it off all together! There can be nothing more disgusting than the texture and feeling of the beard getting caught up in your curry as you chew.
A couple of friends recommended a Turkish barber in Francis Street, Newtownards and so having the day off I decided to give it a go. This was always going to be an uncertain experience as my face cuts easily, and I was concerned how would he shape it? Would I end up looking more like George Michael? Terrifying…
Well to cut a long story short 15 minutes later and a tenner lighter the job was done. As expected my skin didn’t like it but to be honest I do. Bobby the beard has lost a little hard earned length however it’s a lot more comfortable and it’s here to stay to Easter where we will review things again.
What do you think?
