        • Going beard-free wins by a whisker

          Thu 19 Aug 2004
          STEPHEN JARDINE

          I NEED your help this week. Please get a black pencil and shade the area under and on either side of my chin on my photo above. Youll also need a white pencil, randomly applied, to give a hint of grey here and there.

          The result should be frightening. For the first time in my life, I am with beard.

          After 20 years of combat I have given up the battle against the growth. The decision was prompted by curiosity and opportunity. Like all men and some women, Ive always wondered how a beard would look and feel, and a few weeks off work seems the perfect time to find out. Plus, some quick calculations reveal that Ive already shaved more than 7000 times. Nearly a month of my life has been wasted wielding the Wilkinson.

          Then theres the cost. Razor blade manufacturers have men by the short and curlies. That first razor costing 99p is a subtle lure to get teenage boys hooked on an expensive habit. Only when addicted to baby-smooth skin do they discover that replacement blades are a fiver a packet.

          By then there is no going back because the alternative is just too horrible to contemplate. The alternative is a beard.

          Working in television, for me its never been an option. Somewhere deep in the vaults of ITV and the BBC, Im sure there is a commandment stating: "Thou shalt not read the news with facial hair."

          Nothing is openly said, but the suspicion seems to be that viewers dont trust men with beards and moustaches. Poor old Jeremy Bowen tried to prove them wrong but after six months on BBC Breakfast News his moustache was last spotted dodging bullets in the Middle East, where it looked much more at home.

          Of course there was a time when face fur was fashionable here. The statue of John Knox on The Mound features a beard that would put Santa Claus to shame, and you only have to wander around the Portrait Gallery in Queen Street to realise our national heroes were far too busy philosophising and writing literary classics to be bothered with wielding a razor.

          How times change. Nowadays most men with beards are classified as maniacs and al-Qaida suspects, but then thats hardly surprising. One of the most feared and violent criminals in the world, Charles Manson, has spent his 30 years in jail developing quite a set of facial furniture. And very nice it looks too, Mr Manson, if youre reading this.

          Further afield, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein havent exactly helped further the cause. Instead, theyve simply reinforced the view that men with beards spell trouble. You only have to look at the world of politics to see how much the beard is feared.

          Politicians know they need to do everything possible to redeem themselves in the eyes of cynical and suspicious voters so shaving becomes a three-line whip. To prove the point the SNPs Mike Russell refused to conform and ended up losing his seat. Home Secretary David Blunkett is the only senior politician gutsy enough to sport a beard - and thats probably only because his advisers dont have the heart to tell him he stands alone. Or perhaps he just thinks married women like it that way?

          Even once youve decided to brave the opposition, there is the tricky business of choosing one to fit the face. Anything too severely sculpted risks leaving the wearer looking like Craig David, which is never a good idea. But the alternative is to let it go and end up looking like a caveman or, even worse, David Bellamy. I once watched him tackle a bowl of soup and the memory disturbs me to this day.

          In my battle against prejudice, Ive opted for a sort of ten-days-lost-in-the-Pentlands look. Not too wild but not too George Michael, either. In fact, everything was going fine until I started writing this and did some quick research on the internet.

          In among the National Association for the Promotion of Beards in Society (honest) and several sites featuring Russian women shot-putters, I stumbled across the final straw.

          It is a website called babies with beards, and for your own sanity I urge you NEVER to enter its twisted world. I did and had to head straight for the razor.

          Clean shaven once again, Im convinced that beardies are weirdies. Its official.

          Taking the trimmers to Holyrood excesses

          ANOTHER week, another obstacle on the long and winding gold-paved road leading to the opening of the Scottish Parliament.

          A 14,000 consignment of specially-cultivated prime English turf was delivered to the site then shoved to one side where it started to rot because, you guessed it, the contractors werent ready. The grass is now spread out on a field in West Lothian in a bid to revive it. No doubt at further expense.

          I know its a crazy idea, but maybe we could save some cash. It was decided to order the English consignment rather than a cheaper Scottish alternative when Sir David Steel was Presiding Officer. Under his command, the good ship Scottish Parliament sailed into trouble, but in retirement Im sure hes keen to make amends.

          Lets shift the turf down to his estate in the Borders, where he can slip on a cardigan and tend it back to life in his spare time. And if that doesnt work, Im sure he could spare us a few acres. Saving public money isnt that hard after all.

          • Full beard makes smart and sexy

            18. August 2004

            A full beard may not be the last word in terms of fashion but it always brings advantages to his owner - at least psychologists of the University of Kiel believe that. Their experiment resulted in that men with bushy facial hair appear more pleasant, smarter and more attractive.

            For her thesis (diploma) the Kieler student Barbara Strauss showed quite hairy pictures to her 85 fellow students. 48 men were shown of which each second carried a full beard. The result turned out surprisingly clear: "Although all faces looked equally expressionless, on the average the bearded ones were assessed by the test persons as undisputably more positive", said psychologist Kerstin Panhey who took care for the study. It confirmed thereby a report in the september edition of the magazine "Psychologie Heute" (lit. transl.: Psychology Today).

            According to Panhey, who meanwhile works at the technical University (TU) of Braunschweig, the students were told to look out for subtle emotions on the photos such as for example an ironical lip grimace. While the attributed positive and negative emotions were in balance with the beard carriers, negative feelings above all arose with the smooth-shaved.

            "Apparently the experimentees expected emotions, even if none were to be found", explained Panhey. In the end the test persons found the bearded more sympathetic, more educated and also more attractive. However, whether they would win the race as partners among women remains unclear. "We did not ask for it", said the scientist, whose main topic is the role of emotions for the credibility/plausibility of people.

                  • Here's a beard question.......... if a man has two wives, and they both like different styles of beard......... should he change his beard style on a regular basis in order not to favour one wife over the other?

                        but say one wife likes the mustache completely shaved, and the other likes it to be, say, grade 2?

                            grade 8 = 1 inch long, grade 7,6,5,4,3,2,1 are getting shorter, 1 is almost no hair at all (less than 1mm long) grade 2 is about 1mm long (this goes for head hair as well as beards)

                            it's not so much whether he can't make a decision, it's whether his two wives have different opinions on how he should maintain his beard, and whether he has a duty to be fair to them, or whether he should just wear his beard how he likes it, even if this pleases one of his wives more than the other.

                            • if one wife wants it one way and the other wants it another way, the man should just explain to both wives that he will wear it as he pleases, regardless

                              (totally my opinion)
