Beards Grow Better When They Have Goals!

February 3, 2012 7 comments

A question for my bearded brethren: how do your whiskers stand?

I’m referring to the many beard competitions across the nation, and even the world! You didn’t know they took it so seriously did you?

Every since the poplar television program called “Whisker Wars” debuted on the Independent Film Channel, more and more Americans are becoming aware of this fascinating, not-so-new world full of people who think they have the best beard.

Though it may be new to some of us, The World Beard and Mustache Championships have been around longer than some of us have, including yours truly. Traditionally held in Europe, the Championships have made their way to the United States, where Americans became “the world’s new facial hair super power” once they took the title from Germany, who had dominated the competition from the very beginning.

As the competition gained popularity in the states, The Beard Team USA was born.  With chapters littering the USA, including Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (for you local growers out there), the USA has not taken the title of “facial hair super power” lightly.

For those of you who think you have what it takes, consider the National Beard and Mustache Championships 2012.  This competition is set for November 11, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  All entry information and things of that nature will be posted on the website at some point, but growing should start now!

For those of you who are trying to get into it, consider a few tips and tricks.

Good luck, Gents, there is some stiff competition out there, but I know you can do it!

P.S. For those of you who aren’t competing in November, don’t neglect the power of a mustache for Movember.

Mustaches are Power!
