So, with only one pair of clippers with us on the trip being owned by Chris while it's Franci who is sitting with a very very thick black beard which desperately needs to be trimmed...there is only one result....Chris, in his very strong bargaining position has the power over the destiny of Franci's beard. The final terms established were that Franci was only allowed to cut his beard using Chris's clippers (a razor is no longer a possibility in this case!) on condition that Chris could choose the "style"!!

So after being called a yeti by Rob Freercks, Franci finally came to his senses and handed over his face to the crafty hands of Chris for his first trim. I will have to use the pictures to explain it as it's not easy to describe the technique used (Chris's hand grabbing Franci's forehead to keep him still) or the atmosphere created as Franci's slightly nervous wife stood as a not-so-quiet onlooker...Lara was not much of a support as she waited excitedly for the outcome!

Exhibit A...The candidate before the much-needed trim munching on some mielie!

Exhibit B...There's no turning back!

Exhibit C...Chris's technique...take note of the very dirty hands...those of a true mechanic

Exhibit D...The first outcome... 

Fortunately, it turns out that Chris is a better friend than we thought he was as he did not leave his client in that state but decided to finish him off with some smashing lamb-chops, 70's style. Jo is very pleased as according to her, those side burns reflect something very close to Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice!!

Exhibit E...The final outcome of a pretty successful trim.

Hair discussion
This is good news indeed! Now you need to follow suit and return Nikki's doing by cutting her hair. I recently gave Jo the fashionable 'mushroom' cut, which did not go down too well (surprisingly) but once I recovered with a Jennifer Arniston (???) swish and an Avril Leveen (???) 'scruffy back' look, she was finally happy!
Good luck on your side
