You might think that a beard like this appears naturally, but no. This sculpture made of facial hair is the work of painstaking labors to cultivate the ultimate beard and moustache. People like this gentlemen sometimes do it for our entertainment but, more often, for the glory that comes from being a National Beard and Moustache Champion.
A week ago, these world-class competitors gathered in Casper, Wyoming to show what virile hair can do when it’s put to the test. Many are honored, but only a few leave as champions. You can see photos of the results on Instagram.
