Between the cradle and the grave lies a haircut and a shave





I have been reading a book called 'One thousand beards; a cultural history of facial hair' by Allan Peterkin, and so have been making some collages inspired by growing and cutting hair. Along the way I have found some interesting facts like- A fifteen year old boy will trim thirty feet of beard by the time he is eighty, a man has 2500 whiskers, and 90 percent of men shave.
And my favourite quote ' The glory of a man's face is his beard'. Too right.
