Is the beard over?

"However, with the beginning of summer, I think that we'll see a trend in the other direction. Don't be surprised if more men opt for the clean-shaven look during the hotter months."
The trend may not yet be over, but street-style photographer Jonathan Daniel Pryce, the creative force behind the 100 beards in 100 days project, told The Guardian that "I think it is reaching a point of saturation."
