At the beginning of September, a great event happened: the beard and moustache 2013 national US championship. New Orleans, South-East of the country, saw many men with heavy facial hair parade for this contest. A precision, all participants could enter the game in different categories, the moustaches and the beards being split up into two families. The “natural” category does not allow the use of any gel or wax, apart from that, may other styles could participate: the Dali, the English, the Imperial, the Hungarian, the Fu Manchu Goatee, the Musketeer, the Garibaldi beard, the Verdi, etc. To top it all, in the “freestyle” category, no holds barred… Of course following certain (quite stricts) rules: judges have to decide which one of the competitors has a facial hair enhancing the best his general appearance, style and personality. The main criteria are originality and creativity.
