The annual National Beard and Moustache Competition isn’t just for who can grown the best facial hair. The competition has evolved into who can create a facial hair masterpiece. Spoiler alert, the contestants that do the best have usually created some pretty bizarre looks. This year’s event was no different. Thankfully, professional photographer, Greg Anderson was there to catch snapshots of the best entries.
The images will definitely leave your scratching your head. It is like nothing we have ever seen before. Guess we better step out beard game up.
For those hockey enthusiasts. Who needs a chin guard when you have this beauty to cushion your fall?
This gravity-defying look is actually one of the tamer entries.
Our first thought when seeing this entry was the thought of having to remove that glitter from his face. Now that’s commitment.
What is more American than baseball and a big ole beard? Nothing, right? Well, this man appears to think so.
Many entries took a steampunk-inspired approach. However, this beard definitely stood out in the crowd (both literally and figuratively).
This unusual entry actually showcases the least amount of hair. This man featured a portrait of Salvador Dali created by shaving his head. He brought his look together with a Dali-inspired stache.
Yet another steampunk-inspired look.
This look takes the cake. This man transformed his entire head into a colorful bird!
It is incredible to see what these National Beard and Moustache competition contestants can transform simple facial hair into! For more of Anderson’s amazing work, check out his official website at gregandersonphoto.com.
