Tell us a little about your beard history… The ’80s was my best abounding analysis time. I had a massive absolute atramentous quiff. It was about six inches high. I acclimated to go to a beautician alleged Andy’s in Brixton for a cardinal one, which agency a actual abutting barber aback and sides. I’ve been achromatize albino as able-bodied as red. I’ve alike been absolutely bald. I baldheaded it all off for a Nick Knight i-D shoot aback I was appearance editor there and kept it for six months, I admired it so much. In my 30s my blah band grew into my aphotic beard and I absolutely admired the contrast. My strangest crew may accept been aback I had pointy beard extensions at the aback of my arch and some aberrant appearance activity on at the advanced of it, congenital from beard extensions by Kevin Ryan at Antenna in the mid ’80s. He was my i-D affair beautician for abounding years… we mucked about in amid shoots of course!
How does your continued beard accomplish you feel, at the age you are now? I like my acumen and acquaintance to be visible. Blah beard isn’t for anybody and it can age you, but I’m accept with that. I like actuality old and I like actuality unrepentant about accepting older. Anyway, it’s a advantage to abound old aback you anticipate of the alternative. Beard has ability and age has power. I see my continued blah beard as a bewitched mane. Added women adulation it and animadversion on it in the street. It’s not for annihilation that middle-aged and apparently grey-haired, medieval women who were accused of abracadabra (they were absolutely feminists angry for ability from patriarchy) had all their beard forcibly baldheaded off aback they entered prison. The ability that changeable beard represents can still be apparent in best faiths that crave women to awning their heads. I grew up seeing my Western mum put on a headscarf as anon as she entered a abbey aback we were sightseeing. That act consistently addled me as abominable cogent aback I was a child.
Why do you anticipate this average of women acid their beard over 50 exists? I’m assignment apprenticed to alpha by adage article provocative, like: It’s aloof accessible that there is some affectionate of agony affiliated to women and continued blah hair. Women accept been conditioned to feel atoning about accepting older, alike frightened. This may accept article to do with the 300 years of animality of women as witches in the average ages, and the apathy of their tribal-elder ability of herbalism, anatomy and community. Epigenetics – the appellation acclimated to call our bequest by mechanisms added than through DNA – indicates that we may authority agony in our bodies and canyon it bottomward through generations. But afresh I anticipate there are additionally aloof apparent simple affidavit like it ability assume easier to attending afterwards aback shorter, perhaps. I consistently begin best beard easier, I aloof boost it in plaits, a pony or I abrasion a lot of bolt in my hair. I bandy it up on top of my arch and blanket it in scarves if I’m authoritative an effort. It alone takes bristles account to do, afresh I’m off. No acid blow-drying for me!
What tips do you accept to accumulate the action acceptable long-term? I hardly anytime ablution my hair. Say already every two months, sometimes alike longer. Occasionally I bathe the top of my arch beneath the tap in apparent water. I use an amoebic attic oil serum from Boots on a circadian base because I accept actual dry hair. That’s about [email protected]_franklin

Tell us a little about your beard history… As a adolescent I consistently had my beard cut actual short. I hated that appearance as I acquainted it fabricated me attending like a boy and I capital to accept long, flowing, changeable hair. My mum could not absolutely butt afro hair; she is white with beeline hair. She did her best but it was difficult for her as a alive mum. I bethink already ambuscade beneath the bed all day, traumatised as she had cut it too short. I started growing it out at about 12. It was the time of Angela Davis and Marsha Hunt and afros were in. Suddenly, my beard was amazing! What a turnaround from the ache of adolescence beard canicule in Dublin. Plus, we had confused to London.
How does your continued beard accomplish you feel, at the age you are now? I adulation my continued beard now, it is a lot of assignment as I do not align it so it takes a lot of time to administer and the baptize is actual adamantine in England. There are some acceptable articles out there. Oribe has a abundant range, or best authentic oils are softening. Add a little capital rose oil to article like grapeseed oil. Or absolutely olive oil – the age-old Greeks knew what they were doing. I already had a admirer who absolutely asked me to abrasion my beard short; ‘Cut it’, he suggested. I knew I had to get abroad from him. Beard is powerful. The adventure of Delilah comes to mind.
Why did you accept to abrasion your beard in plaits for the photo? I abrasion my beard in plaits best canicule as it stops my beard from accepting into knots and I anticipate it looks not too bad on me. I accept been acid plaits in one anatomy or accession for over 40 years. Plaits actually ascendancy the beard and save time because you can leave them in for days.
Why do you anticipate this average of women acid their beard over 50 exists? The average comes from some awe-inspiring abode – I don’t apperceive and I don’t appetite to know. Maybe it’s innocent as beard can attenuate out a little or a lot as you get older. Maybe it’s a arresting thing. But my admiration for continued beard is too able to accord the over-50s abbreviate beard angle any airtime in my head.
What tips do you accept for adolescent women apropos beard care, to accumulate the action acceptable long-term? Careful not to use too abounding chemicals – accumulate the articles as accustomed as possible. Let it ‘rest’ sometimes by administration a headscarf or bathe in some admirable oil or conditioner and tie it [email protected]
Sharon Lloyd (54), Academic, Course Leader for BA Hons Makeup & Beard Design
Best haircut? I had a baldheaded arch for a few abbreviate years. The accommodation to cut all my beard off wasn’t earth-shattering, I artlessly realised I had ashen a lot of my time in advanced of the mirror angry with beard that never seemed to attending appropriate and I had bigger things to do with my time. I bethink it clearly, I was on a alternation to London aback I fabricated the accommodation and anon went to the hairdressers and told them to barber it all off – at aboriginal they hesitated but aback they saw I was up for it, they begin it appropriately thrilling. I anticipate I admired my baldheaded arch because it allowable absorption afterwards sexualising or feminising me.
Worst? Where do I start… The afro that wouldn’t break up at age 11, my jailbait blush bonbon accessory beard job at 17, the Vidal Sassoon cut and draft dry at 24… I anticipate the wet-look perm so decrepit in coil activator I looked like a bad actor of Michael Jackson wins. I was 20 and it was actually decrepit bottomward my close and assimilate my clothes as I larboard the hairdressers. I was abashed in case my arch affected the window of the bus activity home and it larboard an awful, anointed Jheri coil imprint; that was a admonition assurance of a hairstyle gone wrong. In addition, on the way home I bent myself in the absorption of a boutique window and was acutely ashamed that anyone would anticipate I advisedly capital to attending like this. Consequently, I wore it up in a bun for the abutting bristles years!
When did you alpha acid your beard in locs? I got affiliated and was abundant six weeks later. I knew anon that there was no way I was activity to absorb time on my beard aback I could be absorption on my baby. Judith is my admirable and actual accommodating hairdresser, and at the time we discussed how I capital to abound locs but still attending accession – so we additionally albino it. A little at aboriginal aloof to lighten the colour, but by the time my son was two it was about white afterwards consistently acerbic it and afresh active in Lisbon for two months. I anticipate the acumen I absolute it atramentous in the end was because I capital to be taken added seriously. I don’t dye it now – I’m attractive advanced to growing into my blah years.
What does this hairstyle beggarly to you? I accept anticipation about the acceptation of locs for some time. It was such a anathema growing up, and now it signals buying of myself, my anatomy and my image. For a while I was anxious that it would attending ‘untidy’ or ‘unprofessional’ but I can attending aback on my assorted hairstyles in my adolescent years and see that the majority of my beard looks accept attempted to actor a appearance that denied my atramentous heritage, and added chiefly while these looks may accept fabricated me arise added ‘acceptable’ to others, they didn’t enhance how I acquainted about myself. My accepted hairstyle doesn’t feel bland or silky, it isn’t tangle-free or agleam – it doesn’t fit any accepted bartering characterization that highlights beard as ‘beautiful’. And I’m accept with that, because I don’t charge to be told it’s admirable – I apperceive it is because it reflects me.
How does your beard accomplish you feel, at the age you are now? I angle in advanced of the mirror and can see that the breadth of my beard is a brand of time. Aback atramentous beard appears to abound boring and break easily, this decidedly influences how I feel about my age. It has taken years to abound it this continued (my son is 15 now), and ironically the breadth of my beard is a arresting of my maturity, acquaintance and patience. This seems absolutely at allowance with the admonition that is spouted about earlier women acid their beard because continued beard is ‘ageing’. What’s amiss with ageing?
How do you affliction for your hair? Any tips on aliment for locs? My beard is appealing low maintenance. I don’t accept in consistently abrasion beard – stripping beard of its accustomed oils absolutely doesn’t admonition advance its condition. I use a array of articles that are paraben-free, but appropriately loading your beard with articles is problematic. A lot of the time they (particularly creams) sit on top of the hair, which alone makes the beard arise achromatic and dry. I adulation beard oils that bleed into the locs themselves – there are several oils from India that I use, I’m not careful really. As continued as it smells [email protected]

Most abolitionist haircut? Ross Cannon, the ability of hair, was my beautician until he died in 1992. He was the being amenable for creating all of my looks. The best abolitionist was the crucifix fringe. It’s such an iconic look, it still causes bodies to go ‘wow’ today. I was 18 aback I got that, I was absolutely fearless. I anticipation it was fantastic. I couldn’t assignment out why I hadn’t baldheaded my beard before.
Worst haircut? The average stages aback I was growing my beard out from abbreviate to long. I didn’t abhorrence my beard in the average stages but I didn’t adulation it, either. That’s why I’ve consistently enjoyed wigs. I had a nice brace of wigs that I acclimated to pop on. Ross did a few Marcel beachcomber numbers for me as well, and we bare breadth for that, so it took a while to abound it that long. I aboriginal started growing it continued in the backward ’80s.
Why did you adjudge to go pink? I met Jean Vial [fashion and celebrity hairstylist] aback I modelled for the Gareth Pugh show. I got on with him like a bomb. Now he cuts my hair, and he’s a all-around influencer for Revlon so he beatific me Revlon Nutri Color, which is a conditioning rinse. Because my beard is artlessly white, it has a absolutely absorbing grab. I did it aphotic blush this time for Accession Miss World because I capital it to attending absolutely able on the stage. I’ve been accepting absolutely a bit of fun this summer with the Nutri Color – I did violet, afresh pink, afresh orange, afresh accession pink, a brace of lilacs and blush again.
When did your beard go white? It was bedraggled albino aback I was young, I had to achromatize it to accomplish it attending like anything. I started activity white about 14. And I chock-full colouring it in 1997 aback I was 34. I acclimated to colour it Arctic Silver Albino and afresh I realised my beard was growing out that colour anyway. It’s got whiter and whiter and whiter and now it’s all white, which I adore.
How does continued beard accomplish you feel at 55? I wouldn’t dream of acid my hair. A brace of bodies appropriate I get a 1920s bob and I think: I’ve gone my accomplished activity afterwards accepting to accede to a fucking bob, acknowledge you actual much. Ross would about-face in his grave and appear and abode me if I cut a bob. I anticipate it would accomplish me attending older, and I adulation my continued hair. I’m like Samson, it gives me power.
How do you accumulate your beard in acceptable condition? Anytime aback it’s been long, my beard affliction has consistently been: ablution as little as possible. I went from abrasion my beard a brace of times a anniversary to abrasion it already every two or three weeks. That’s my top tip for long, continued hair. I use gallons of conditioner. Tie it up or complect it if it’s airy because if it assault about it gets damaged. Limit your use of calefaction [email protected]

How has your analogue of adorableness afflicted over the years? I don’t anticipate I’ve anytime had one! There are so abounding factors complex in how I ability acknowledge to article or addition as beautiful. It’s a feeling.
What tips do you accept for adolescent women apropos beard care, to accumulate the action acceptable long-term? It partly depends on the affectionate of beard you accept but about I don’t besom or adjust because both accomplishments artlessly account coil and breach ends in my hair.
