Turkish Shave

Back in November, Table XI ran a Movember contest - see who can grown the most ridiculous mustache while raising money for men’s health. I bowed out because, as far as facial hair is concerned, I haven’t hit puberty yet.

Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to find a little sumpin’ sumpin’ growing on my face over the last few weeks. By the time we left the farm, I had gone three weeks without shaving, resulting in, by far, the most facial hair I’ve ever sported.

My friend Mark Maronick took me to his barber on Monday, where I experienced my first authentic Turkish shave. As Mark described him, our barber is a “pro of pros.” Not a single nick between the two of us.

The haircut and shave cost 12 TL - about $7.
