The World Beard and Moustache Championships
The World Beard and Moustache Championships is a biennial competition hosted by the World Beard and Moustache Association (WBMA), in which men with beards and moustaches display lengthy, highly styled facial hair.
Each two years the World Beard and Moustache Championships are held in a city around the world. The contest sees contestants battle it out in three main categories: moustache, partial beard and full beard.
Don't be jealous, it's my beard! You call it facial hair, I call it awesomeness escaping through my face. If u don't like my beard.....then leave me baby. A man without beard is like lion without mane.
