Hair piece : LETTER

Sean Langan's discovery of a pubic hairdressing salon ("The Kaiser's kindest cut", 11 February) would have pleased Baudelaire, whose poem "Les Promesses d'un Visage" extols the beauty of pubic hair as matching that of the head:

And under a smooth belly, soft as velvet,

Swarthy as the skin of a Buddhist,

A rich fleece, which truly is the sister

Of this huge head of hair,

Compliant and curly, its thickness equals

Black night, night without stars!
