Back to anecdotes about the ups and downs of facial hair, from ancient Egypt to the hipsters and lumbersexuals of the 21st century. A hairy story. Back to the most famous beards in history.
Although hipsters pride themselves on having made beards fashionable and even invented them, the reality is that beards have existed since time immemorial. If we were to mention famous bearded men, surely actors, athletes, musicians and even the Magi, Santa Claus, the magician Merlin or six of the Seven Dwarves come to mind, to name but a few examples.
