Beard Clinic Maps Strategy for Shaving
HOW men should manipulate their razors to give themselves a smooth, clean shave is explained by dermatologists at the New York World’s Fair after a facial examination with an ingenious apparatus. On human faces, the experts say, the beard grows in different directions, which should be followed by the shaver as he uses his razor. To determine hair directions on a subject, a dermatologist observes the face through a magnifying glass fitted with a light-polarizing screen. Colored lights then enable him to look below the skin surface of a clean-shaven visitor and study the direction of beard growth on all parts of his face. Findings are marked on a chart.
