Instant Establishment Wig

Created in 1969 by Bob Woodford, for when longhairs temporarily needed to blend in with the collective, corporate establishment.

But I think those sideburns are still a giveaway.

So, how would I have hidden my beard?

As a plus, with all the hair tucked under, you would be somewhat taller

The sideburns were haute fashion for the day. It does remind me of this though:

In our anything-goes culture, it's easy to forget how much long hair on men was once frowned upon, and how truly subversive and (for older people and "squares") frightening it was. As with beards and wearing jeans, long hair on men supposedly spoke volumes about one's political and cultural leanings. Although today, as anyone familiar with "Duck Dynasty" can tell you, those distinctions are now meaningless.
