My beard week: 20 Jan, 2017

What a busy beard-week! It was so busy that I actually forgot to post this on it’s ment-to-be day … cos Friday is Beardday! What happened? I was invited to model for a hair dresser training at Valentino Coiffeur in Zurich. I was asked not to trim or shave the week before, so I did and I got a trim from the master barber who was an import from NYC. Woohoo.

Take a look at the gallery below – the result of the trim was quite cool. He faded the end of the beard into my head hair. While I like the idea of a fade, you might ask “what head hair does it fade to?”. Well. Ya right … to prepare well for the modeling, I also didn’t shave my bald for over a week before, hoping for a complete treatment of course. But nope, the barber didn’t shave the head, which is integral part of my overall styling (btw – a friend recently told me that the combo bald/full beard is a pure niche styling … LOL). While the fade worked well with the left overs on my head, I shaved myself the other day to get fresh again. But without hair I don’t like it – I think I will go back to my regular, swing-styled edge 🙂

All in all there is only one possible conclusion: It’s nice to go to a barber, enjoy the trim and let him do the shit. But it’s better to trust and trim by yourself. (I have to add that it was a barber-only training, and time was very limited. So it was not a big deal to leave half-way only 🙂 – I got nice food afterwards and it was a funny morning).

Have a nice weekend 🙂
