I take great satisfaction at nipping it between thumb nail and finger, and yanking the little feckers out
The best shave and facial hair overhaul that I have ever had was in a Turkish barber shop on a dusty backstreet. These guys were buzzing around a dozen or so chairs and the customers, mostly Turkish men, that filled them.
The shave itself was with a lemon based moisturiser/cream combo, deftly done with a cutthroat razor-I watched them for a good 15 mins prior to going in there to see if anyone bled/died before offering up my whiskers.. All went well, although there was a fair bit of gesticulating and pointing for a moment over my sideburns as they wanted to chop 'em off; 'I like them level with the bottom of my ears- Thank you -I'm paying!' I don't know how they would of coped if they saw Bradley Wiggins walk into their shop..
Then without warning they started on my ears
.. They set fire to this 3'' hooped ring and started waving it about around my ears, burning off the silky (under belly of a rodent type) fluff that they were enshrouded in. Rolling this flame about making the place stink of..me burning.
I was most impressed at the execution and the results. I looked years younger -I'm 34 anyway so no biggie there - but it was worth grinning lots, a handshake and tipping well.
It was all going so well until, on the way out, they tried to convince my partner she needed her eyebrows doing
It's all grown back now but I will never forget that experience.
