Gentlemen’s hairstyles were long during the 19th century, it was often worn to the collar. During the middle of the period it became fashionable to grow long and bushy ‘whiskers’ at the side of the face (we know them today as sideburns), these were referred to as ‘mutton chops’ and ‘Piccadilly weapers’. Men visited their barbers frequently and the shops would have been busy and vibrant places.
