Hirsute permit hot weather beard trimming for 2nd time in weeks

Beard Liberation Front

19th June

For the second time in less than a month the Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers which campaigns against beardism, has issued advice to the hirsute to take special care of their beards as temperatures are set to hit 32C in some areas of the UK this week.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, while there is absolutely no need to fully shave off the beard in the UK during hot temperatures prudent trimming is acceptable.

When in Algiers in 1882 Karl Marx had a full beard trim, as opposed to pruning, and exceptionally this is also permitted when temperatures rise to 30C or higher.

The campaign group says that a change to hot temperatures can mean that the beard is unused to the conditions and follicles may dry out and wither unless precautions are taken.

Guidelines for maintaining the Beard in hot weather

If the beard is above six inches in length moderate summer trimming may be in order, following the guidelines set by Marx in 1882
If the beard starts to over-heat immersing it in the freezer cabinet of the nearest supermarket will provide an instant remedy
Hand held fans may also be used to ventilate the beard
If the beard starts to dry out in the heat and follicles become brittle immersion in a pint of craft beer will moisturise and nourish the beard
