The remarkable facial hairstyle reaches to the mid-chest of the artist. The longest strands are confined at intervals of about one-inch with tight bands of narrow diameter. These strands of facial hair come from about a two-inch diameter area just below the jut of his chin. The area below the lower lip appears to be shorter hair which is quite bushy.
His face is clean-shaven except for the area of his chin and below the chin. The width of this patch of facial hair is less than the width of his mouth and is combed straight down, although with enough fullness that it doesn’t appear thin. His facial hair and long beard is a reddish or sandy brown in color and is rubber banded.
