Festival property lock-up manager Graham Allen poses for a photograph at the 2014 Glastonbury Festival in Glastonbury, England. The 65-year-old, who has been running the CND property lock-up since 1989 has been growing his beard since he was 27. Many fashion commentators are claiming that beards have peaked in 2014 and the era of fashionable facial hair may be coming to an end. And research by the wet shave subscription service, Cornerstone, shows that Glastonbury 2014 may be the hairiest year since 1981 thanks to such headliners as Kasabian and Metallica playing the Pyramid stage. The researchers claim that ‘peak beard’ periods at Glastonbury have famously lead to a decline in societal hairiness, and believe that 2014 will mark the death of the beard and a new era of well-groomed music lovers.

The custom’s continuation in Mexico is seen in part as a continuing protest against the treatment of Mexican immigrants north of the border.
