Beard Campaigners agree shaving as temperatures set to hit 32C


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it has given permission to supporters to temporarily shave their beards this week as the temperature is set to hit 32C in some parts of the country.

It is only the second time that the campaign group has given such authority, the first being in July 2014.

The BLF says that shaving is not its preferred option for dealing with high temperatures but exceptionally it has given permission.

The campaign group says that one of the most iconic beard wearers, Karl Marx, set the precedent when visiting Algiers in 1882.

He wrote to Engels on 28th April 1882 ‘because of the sun I have done away with my prophet’s beard’.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we prefer trimming the beard and cooling it off in a glass of craft beer, or in a freezer cabinet of a supermarket to shaving in very hot weather. However we accept that when the temperature goes over 30C some, people working in already hot conditions for example, may prefer to shave.
