Hilarious Photos From the National Beard & Mustache Championships

September 26, 2013 in Photography

Facial hair is everywhere at the moment.  Take a look around and you will see many a well-groomed Tash and unruly Beard. But did you know that there was such a thing as the National Beard and Mustache Championships?  Yes there is! Earlier this month, the 4th Annual Championship was held in New Orleans and Las Vegas-based photographer Greg Anderson was on-hand to give us a front-row seat as the bizarre spectacle of facial hair paraded in front of his camera lens. The championships involved some 150 contestants from the U.S., U.K., and Canada who competed in 17 different categories. If you want more, here’s a giant gallery of 164 portraits from the event.  Here are our favorites…
