As a woman who does anything and everything to hide even the smallest trace of facial hair, I’ve always wondered what it would be like to have a beard. I often imagine myself pinpointing random strangers on the street and fantasizing about what it would be like to curl, straighten, braid, or style their beards with some hairspray and gel.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to working with hair, but sometimes it’s nice to experiment with someone else’s instead of your own. Especially when you see someone that can do so much more with the hair that they have.
Recently, the 2019 Beard and Moustache Championships (Yes, it’s a thing. And yes, I’m just as surprised as you are) took place, which showcases the most creative facial hair looks. Check out some highlights from the competition below:
Are you bold enough to rock some of these looks?
