To watch the video version of this show goto:

Tonight we announce our first online beard competition brought to you by FHL, and Honest Amish. All proceeds will benefit The Family Center in Wilmore KY. We will have the owner of the FHL Mr. Brett Strauss on tonight to discuss his app and why he is the worlds most sexiest man.

Here are the competition details-


Talking Beards have teamed up with the Facial Hair League to present to you the most unique online beard competition.  It will take place LIVE May 9th and will be hosted LIVE on-line by Talking Beards.  All proceeds raised will be donated to The Family Center in Willmore KY. The Family Center as a meeting place and a resource library, aims to be a comprehensive resource for the diverse needs of Central Kentucky families while creating a sustainable community. Today's parents are both busier than ever before and burdened with a desire to be the best parent possible, while being overwhelmed by an increasing volume of information often from polarizing perspectives. Our goal is to create a healthy community with connections to local agencies, organizations and individuals utilizing the rich resources already available while equipping families with the ability to share with their neighbors and friends.

We will be doing an online competition consisting of 15 categories and will be limited to the first 20 people that enter each category.  Don't worry-this is going to be the first of many of these types of events so there will be more chances to get in on this!  Each person who wants to participate will make a donation for their competitor ticket.  Once they have been confirmed we will reach out to you for more information. If you don’t already have the app, we will create you your own profile and enter the information needed.  Once we have filled the category we will make voting go LIVE on the Facial Hair League for 1 week.  This will strictly be a fan voted competition so make sure you and all your friends download the FHL app so everyone can vote.

Our Categories….


1. Quarantine Beard -Haven’t left the house for a bit because of this stupid virus???  Many of you had to shave for your jobs and are now working from home and have quit shaving-show us what you got!!!


2. Mustache -This is just a plain ol’ mustache-if you got one come on and join the fun.


3. Styled Mustache -This is for that mustached man who likes to dress his stache up a little bit.  Wanna do some curls? Wanna do the English Style? Wanna go for the Dali??? Show us how creative you can be!


4. Chops- These are you general sideburns that will run down you cheeks but are separated by a clean shaven chin. Mustache is optional in this one.  Just remember, Talking Beards does not condone you to choose to have this style as your preferred facial hair choice.


5. Whaler -The dumbest of all facial hair styles, The Donegal or Amish Beard, is nothing more than a beard without a mustache…see-pretty dumb!


6. Goatee -The GREATEST OF ALL Facial hair styles!!!  This is pretty much shaving down 3 to 4 inches from the top of where a sideburn would start. Clean shaven cheeks and a mustache is optional!


  7. Full Beard under 4 inches -Got a full beard that is under 4 inches???  Measure from under your bottom lip… If your beard falls under 4 inches-this is your category.


  8. Full Beard 4-8 inches -Got a full beard that is between 4 and 8 inches???  Measure from under your bottom lip… If your beard falls between 4 inches and 8 inches-this is your category.


  9. Full Beard 8-12 inches --Got a full beard that is between 8 and 12 inches???  Measure from under your bottom lip… If your beard falls between 8 and 12 inches-this is your category.


10. Super Beard 12+ inches - If your full beard is longer than 12 inches-I guess this is your place!


11. Styled Mustache with any type beard - If you have a partial beard, or full beard and have a glorious mustache-style that mustache up and enter this category.


12. Freestyle-partial and full beard -Calling all creative minds!!!  Use whatever you want to make you beard as crazy as you want.  All you need to do is GOOGLE “freestyle beard” and you will know what we are looking for.


13. Whiskerina Real -Calling all of our lovely ladies out there.  Can you make a “real” looking beard or mustache from real hair, synthetic hair, or crepe wool?  It can just be a simple beard-or you may choose to style it up but make it look as real as possible!


14. Whiskerina Craft -Lets see your craft side ladies!!! Grab some of your crafting products and build yourself something pretty-but to wear as a beard!!!  Try to be creative and resourceful and have some fun with this-but remember it still needs to be beard shaped!!!


15. Combo Beard -A Talking Beards exclusive category!  This is one we have been talking about for years- A tag team beard.  How this works is this: If you have a goatee-team up with a chops guy to make the best “full beard”.  If you are a whaler-find a great mustache guy to make the best beard. 


How this is all going to work:


1. You will register for these categories by going to our Eventbrite  page


2. You will select which category you would like to participate in.


3. You will then “purchase” your event ticket by submitting a donation.  It can be whatever you feel like making it- $2, $5, $15, $50, whatever you can donate-we all know times are tough right now so we understand if you can’t afford to give a lot.  Every thing that we collect for this online competition will be donated directly to The Family Center.


4. Once we get a confirmation email, we will message you and have you submit a photo to us.


5. The photo you will submit will have to be a selfie of you and your beard.  We will not accept any previous competition photos.  We need to work on a trust system with these.  We want a current selfie of you and your beard, or creation.


6. Once we receive your name, email, and photo we will add your information into our virtual event on the FHL app.  You will then receive a confirmation email explaining what you will do next. Submissions will be stopped at 11:30 pm on May 1st.


7. A week before the competition , Saturday May 2nd, voting will go live on the FHL app.  People from all around the world will be able to vote on the top three of each category.  For those that already have an account you will just be judging on your top 3 and gaining points for your correct picks as they compare to everyone else’s picks for the same category.  The fan/voter at the end of the event will win some great prizes courtesy of the FHL and Honest Amish.  Make sure you go out and get the FHL app so you can participate!!! Goto


8. We will shutdown all online voting at 5pm on May 9th before we go LIVE to host the event.  Aaron and Scott will be the virtual “emcees” for the online competition.  People, participants, and fans can tune in as we introduce each of the people who have entered this competition.  We will go through each person until we find out who was voted “Top 3” by calculating the fan vote.  We will then announce who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and then move onto the next category until we have completed this round. We will be doing this LIVE on our Talking Beards Facebook page as well as streaming it LIVE at


9. Winners will receive some great prizes from Honest Amish and the claim to fame as a Talking Beard, The competition Winner.


10. Each player that places in the top 3 will also be given a point total that will display onto their FHL app profile.  As we continue to do these online types of events, past winners will be called back to compete in a series of events based on points against other winners from other events. 


  We understand that times are different right now and all we want to do is have some fun with our people.  There are a bunch of other on-line/virtual beard camps that have already been popping up.  Each one has a different idea of how they are going to conduct their on-line competition, but this is how we thought it could be the most fun for everyone involved.  We didn't want it to be just about the beard and mustache growers.  We want to get more people involved-open up our "nook" to the rest of the world and share what we do.  We have always been firm believers of expanding the facial hair community and this was our idea to do so.  We want to draw in a whole new community so ours may grow and do more for lots of people.  We want people to have fun, experience something new, and grow the facial hair community.
