NATIONAL NO SHAVING DAY SET FOR JANUARY 1st
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that 2017 is set to start with the highest numbers of beards since 1945
National No Shaving Day takes place on Sunday 1st January.
The BLF says numbers are set to mark the day by starting a beard similar to Beard of the Year winner Tim O’Rourke’s full organic beard, while some may prefer the more artisanal beard of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The hirsute campaigners say that 1st January is the best day in the year to start a beard. With many out celebrating until the early hours the last thing most want to do is to shave. As it is Sunday and the following day is a Bank Holiday the beard can be started in the privacy of the wearer’s own home.
The BLF has provided the following guidelines to starting a beard on Sunday:
Step 1: do not shave
Step 2: by early afternoon, wash the face and comb through the developing stubble
Step 3: during the afternoon rub some craft beer, or if you must, lemon juice, into the developing facial hair to nourish it and promote growth
Step 4: In the evening you can begin to trim and style the proto-beard
BLF organiser Keith Flett said, Beards are set to be big again as 2017 dawns, with not only record numbers of trendy designer beards but also a resurgence in the traditional organic full bearded style
