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!

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.

Spiffy beard wax!
I would like to see more pictures about burning man
