The Kinghorne

This style was better suited to the high, starched collars and cravats that featured in fashions of this era, when men seemed to favour hairstyles that lent an air that could be both dignified and tousled; respectable and raffish. This style also stopped respectably short of beards which, up until the late 1840s, remained aligned with political radicalism and other conditions eschewed by regular men.
