Rasputin and his beard in 1916

If anyone ever needed a good shampoo and a blowout, it was Grigori Rasputin, the legendary "mad monk" of the Russian royal family. This photo of Rasputin was taken in 1916.

Sadly, Rasputin was not long for this world: he was murdered by a group of Russian noblemen in December of 1916. One of those nobles wrote in his memoirs about Rasputin's gruesome death: He was fed poisoned cakes and poisoned wine, shot, left for dead, came back to life, was shot again, then finally rolled up in fabric and dropped into the Maylaya Nevka river.
