Synopsis
Do you know how to trim your whiskers properly? With beards and moustaches more popular than ever, this delightful little book sets out to answer this pressing question. And if a trim is not required, then it will show you how to wax, polish and maintain your face furniture so that it is always in tip-top condition. Alongside these manly grooming tips is a guide to famous facial-hair aficionados, from Karl Marx to Des Lynam; a breakdown of styles; and a perambulation through hirsute history, including an explanation of why the beard was considered sacred by the ancient Greeks and slovenly by ancient Romans. So whether it's the Handlebar or the Chevron; the Goatee or the Spade - peruse this book for hints and tips of how to handle your facial fuzz. Chris Martin is the former editor of the publishing industry website Bookends. He is the author of Greenwich Mean Time, Celebrity Tattoos and the Golf Companion, as well as Has Britain Gone Bonkers. He has two children, two cats and has enjoyed an on-off relationship with the Goatee for over twenty years. He lives in London.
