The World Beard and Moustache Championship recently took place in Leogang, Austria. In the frankly brilliant concept, men are judged across 3 brackets of facial hair – a moustache, a partial beard and a full beard. Each bracket is further split into individual categories, normally resulting in 17 in total.
Since 1990, here are some of the wackiest but amazing beards we found!
