Stuart Broad appears to have been to a barber’s in India. We’ve deduced this by the fact that he’s now got a nice, sensible side-parting, where before he had an effete, highlighted mullet.
If you go to a barber’s in India, you can ask for what you like, but more often than not, what they’ll hear is “a nice, sensible side-parting please”. We had multiple haircuts in India. They were inevitably nice, sensible side-partings.
If Stuart Broad is a wise man, then he’d also have asked for a shave. Getting a shave at a barber’s in India is one of the best things a man can do. You get a brilliant facial massage and you can pretend that you didn’t know it was going to happen. A facial massage while retaining a firm and robust sense of your own masculinity – what could be better?
We write altogether too many updates about cricketers’ hair, don’t we? We don’t care. We have a firm and robust sense of our own masculinity.
