You may be proud of your neatly groomed facial hair, but these guys take it to crazy new levels of awesome. They were all competitors in the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championships (sponsored by Just For Men) which were held last Saturday in Portland, Oregon. Over 300 people competed in 18 different categories that involved more than just having a ton of hair on your face.
OregonLive spoke with event organizer Phil Olsen who said they were looking for facial hair that “best enhances their overall appearance, style and personality.” If these pictures are any indicator, personalities ranged from soldiers to adventurers to Gandalf.
