World’s Best Beards And Moustaches From 2015 Championship
Hundreds of bearded men flooded the small Austrian village of Leogang on Oct. 3. The reason behind their gathering is the 2015 World Beard and Moustache Championships. Men were competing in 3 categories: moustache, partial beard and full beard.
“I am expecting strong competitors with unusual beards in Saalfelden Leogang this year,” said Wilhelm Preuss, the president of the East Bavarian Beard Club. “We will see where beards grow the fastest.”
The championships are hosted by the World Beard and Moustache Association (WBMA). The first competition took place in Germany in 1990, so it looks like beards was a thing even B.H. (before hipsters).
