It's a facial hair competition. The rules are simple: show up on time, be in the right category, and don't whine if you don't get first. It goes without saying, but artificial  hair is grounds for disqualification. Leave the weave at home (unless you're one of our wonderful whiskerinas).

With ten categories that run the gamut from close-cropped Business Beard to gnarly, balls-to-the-wall Full Beard Freestyle, there's a place for everyone, even the ladies. Check out our categories below and choose the one that's most appropriate for you. If you aren't sure, get the one that fits the closest and we'll help you find the right category on the day of.

Judging is based on aesthetic qualities including health, thickness, length, and color, in addition to how well the facial hair enhances the competitor's overall style.

For the sake of time, categories are capped at 40 entrants on a first-come, first-served basis.

 Styling aids are aids which help shape the hair including wax, hairspray, gel, scotch tape, goat saliva, or whatever else you choose to use. Wires are not permitted.

 

All hair on the face counts toward your category. If you rock wicked mutton chops with that 'stache, that counts as a partial beard, not a moustache. We're not going to "Just ignore the soul patch, dude." When you show up you will be pre-judged to make sure you're in the right category, so make sure to register for the category that fits best.

 

NATURAL MOUSTACHE

Moustache hairs must not grow from beyond 1.5 centimeters past the corner of the lip. Styling aids are  forbidden, but conditioners and curlers are allowed.


STYLED MOUSTACHE

Moustache hairs must not grow from beyond 1.5 centimeters past the corner of the lip. All shapes and styles are allowed. Go ahead, impress us.

PARTIAL BEARD

All partial beard categories including sideburns, goatees, musketeers, and fu manchus. Styling aids are allowed but the emphasis is on grooming, not creativity.

PARTIAL FREESTYLE

Creatively styled partial beards belong in this category.  Styling aids are allowed and the wackier you can get, the better. Use your imagination.

FULL BEARD 4" AND UNDER
Short beards under 4", with emphasis on grooming and presentation. This is the category for new growers and all you white-collar types. Styling aids are not allowed.

FULL BEARD STYLED STACHE

Beards of any length are allowed. Hairs beyond 1.5 centimeters past the corner of the upper lip may not be styled. NO styling products are allowed in the beard (this includes hairspray)!

FULL BEARD UNDER 8"

Styling aids are NOT allowed for any part of the face. The beard must remain natural.


FULL BEARD OVER 8"

Styling aids are NOT allowed for any part of the face. The beard must remain natural.

FULL BEARD FREESTYLE

Our jaw-droppingest category. Styling aids are mandatory. It takes a lot to surprise us, but we know somebody out there is just waiting to blow our minds. Is it you?

WHISKERINA
This arts-and-craft category is strictly ladies only. From scrap metal to bacon to fake fur, virtually anything goes.

 

JUDGES

Our judges represent an assortment of some of competitive bearding's biggest stars. With hundreds of competitions under their combined belts, they've traveled the world and seen it all (or so they think). From world and national champions to well-traveled fellow Californians, you're in good hands with our panel.

 

The judging criteria is based on health, thickness, color, and length of the facial hair, in addition to how well it enhances the competitor's overall look. Presentation matters, folks. Contestants will be graded on a classic 10-scale, with each judge giving out one 10, one 9.5, and one 9 to their top three picks in every category.
