What do handlebars, Mexicans, pencils and toothbrushes all have in common? Answer: they are all names of moustache styles.

‘Men in the Mirror’ is about men’s hair in all its glory! The changing face of male grooming is explored in this hirsute exhibition.

The exhibition looks at the roots of the barber’s profession; untangles the history of shaving equipment; looks at the changing face of men’s hair fashion and features some of the most resplendent moustaches ever seen.

‘Men in the Mirror’ at Wakefield Museum runs from 26 October 2013 until 31 May 2014
