The attack of the Turk…

Early last October I decided to grow a goatee.  For me it’s the first time that I have ever grown any type of facial hair and so wasn’t really sure what to expect or if I would like it.  Recently I’ve been watching a lot of masculine TV.  You know the type of thing, Ice Road Truckers, The Road to Hell, Orange County Choppers and a like.  Surprisingly inspired by some of the face furniture on show there I thought let’s give it a go.  What have I to lose?  After all I’ve had the same look since I was 16…

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?
