‘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.’
