Hirsute history may not be the most sought-after field at institutes of higher learning, but the long-storied saga of the barber aand the beard deserve study. In At the Sign of the Barber's Pole, the late academic William Andrews has poured over countless historical records and works of literature to offer readers the definitive story of society's fondness for bygone beards, mustaches, and wigs.
