Hirsute warn hot weather beard trims are a craft. DO NOT visit a barber’s shop

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers which campaigns against beardism, irrational prejudice against the hirsute has issued a warning about appropriate and inappropriate beard trimming as the temperature continues to be around the 30C in some parts of the UK.

The campaigners have urged the hirsute to take special care of their beards in high temperatures. Trimming is acceptable but on no account should the hirsute visit a barber’s shop

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, shaving off the beard in the UK during hot temperatures is the very worst thing that you can do. Facial hair has a cooling effect on the skin and exposure to the sun’s rays after shaving is likely to lead to sunburn.

Flett continued, however when in Algiers in 1882 Karl Marx had a full beard trim, as opposed to pruning, and exceptionally this is also a permitted activity

Guidelines for maintaining & trimming the Beard in hot weather

If the beard is above three 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.

Trimming should on no account be done in a barbers shops. Barbers are notorious pogonophobes who will enthusiastically ‘over-trim’

Trimming should be done using a pair of fine scissors and a mirror to a length and style to suit. DO NOT use any form of shaver. Trimming is a craft job
