MOUSTACHES, WHISKERS AND BEARDS

Since time immemorial, men – and occasionally women – have embraced facial hair for social, religious, decorative and climatic reasons. Using images from London’s National Portrait Gallery, and based on her book Moustaches, Whiskers and Beards, writer and art historian Lucinda Hawksley takes us on a curly and entertaining tour of moustaches, whiskers and beards: from prehistoric to current times, rounding up pharaohs, Vikings, Regency beaus, 1960s’ hippies and hipsters along the way.
