The 2015 Moustache And Beard World Championships just concluded in Leogang, Austria. This year’s competition saw over 300 contestants and took place in Austra last weekend, on October 3rd. Unlike most of the civilized world where a beard and moustache are supposed to fit within one of a few specific styles, the beards and moustaches at the World Championships are so fucking outrageous I cannot even wrap my mind around how some of these are even attached to a man’s face.
I’ve pulled several photos (below) from Getty Images, and I’ve also included a list of the winners from each of the 16 categories down below for those of you that are interested in that.
And here are the results!

Seriously?! ‘Fashion Beard’ is a category at the World Beard Championships and nobody sees anything wrong with this? Also, is it just the same handful of guys winning the World Moustache And Beard Championships every year now or am I just confused because it’s a defined set of categories?
I’d have lvoed to be include each and every photograph taken at the 2015 Moustache and Beard World Championships but as this is BroBible we can’t really afford to spend the $$$$$ on every single Getty Image, but you can check out a shit ton more photos by CLICKING HERE to head on over to CNN, or CLICKING HERE to head over to QZ.com!!
