World Beard Championships

The World Beard and Moustache Championships is a biennial competition in which men with beards and moustaches display lengthy, highly-styled facial hair. :))
The first Championship took place in Höfen-Enz, Germany, in 1990.

Yesterday in Trondheim, Norway Elmar Weisser, 47, beat 160 contestants to the prize with his elaborate facial hair sculpture of a moose, in the latest World Beard and Moustache Championship.   –  full Gallery inside
