The 2011 World Beard and Moustache Championships will take place on May 15, 2011, in Norway’s facial hair capital, Trondhjem. The Norwegian Moustache Club is pulling out all stops to welcome the world’s facial hair elite.
The competition will take place in approximately sixteen categories ranging from the delicate Dali moustache to the anything-goes full beard freestyle.
The championships coincide with Norway’s annual national celebration on May 17. The new world champs and other contestants will be invited to participate in the parade through Trondhjem for the festivities.
Here’s a sample of what you may see at this hirsute event.
Pretty amazing! The hours of tender care that must go into the growth and maintenance of such fine specimens.
