Top 7 wackiest facial hairs in the 2019 World Beard and Moustache Championships

The biennial competition draws hundreds of bewhiskered contestants from across the globe.

Hundred of hairy men from around the world have descended on Antwerp in Belgium for the 2019 World Beard and Moustache Championships.

Many spectacular styles are on show including majestic handlebars and swirling whiskers, as competitors battle out to become facial fuzz kings.

The wacky contest sees the well-groomed competitors take part in three main categories – moustache, partial beard and full beard – with each including several sub-categories.

The three-day event also gives women a chance to show off creations in a Ladies’ competition, with categories for Realistic and Creative expression of artificial beards and moustaches.

Since 2001, the event has been held every two years at different locations around the world including, Brighton, England and Stuttgart, Germany.
