The location was Stockholm, Sweden, where hundreds, if not thousands of dapper bearded gentlemen gathered to celebrate 'World Beard Day' in true furry faced style, searching for the best facial hair and best barbers in attendance.
The event took place to crown 'battle of the Barbers'
and 'Best Styled Beard'
to name just a few categories taking place during the three day event, which seen beardsmen take titles and prizes for best in show, that were hand selected by an independent international panel of judges.
Four of Sweden's finest barbers were put to the ultimate test on how to style and tame the biggest and busiest of beards in just under a strict 45 minute schedule timed clock, and all for the love of our beloved furry faces.
The competiton isn't exclusively for men either, as they're also selected set categories where the lovely ladies can participate and become creative with their homemade face rugs.
This isn't the first time that this event has taken place either, as the competition runs every two years and seems to be continuously keep growing in popularity with each and event, and rightfully so. Many similar events take place globally each year, from Texas
, New York
as well as London
, England, beard competition popularity is certainly on the rise.
The event runs over three days in total and includes live on stage entertainment, food and drink vendors and family friendly activities and attractions amongst the fuzzy face events.
