[Work] Full beard trim session and a really cheap cape

Barbering session beard

I’m always awestrucked by those big, mighty full beards. Especially when I’m asked to trim them.

But this latin black beauty is pretty easy to maintain, more than you might think. I am asked to trim it once a month and this beard is extremely frizzy, which is the reason for the lack of defined contures like straight beards usually have.

The only real danger here is to know when to stop cutting, otherwise it might be too short in the end. But a happy customer left my chair 🙂

BTW, I bought this new cape for trimming sessions. I have a black one in use, but it is kinda hard to cut dark beards on it. Thus I ordered this white one. And what can I say … I paid 4 Euro for it and threw it in the trash bin after the first and only use. Why?

Cheap hair cape
Such a crappy cape … as my grandma used to say: “Wer billig kauft, kauft doppelt”. So true.

I was actually hoping for a better contrast of beard and cape, but that was in the end totally not helpful. It was even more difficult to trim because of that Japanese pattern (which I didn’t notice on the shop webpage of course). Plus, the hooks in the neck opened over and over again because of their extremely Chinese (LOL cheap) construction. #Megafail
