Moustache and beard aficionados from around the world competed in Antwerp on Saturday, May 18th, in the World Beard and Moustache Championship, proudly displaying their sometimes extravagant facial hair style, Reuters reported.

Hundreds of hairy men participated in the 2019 edition of the competition in categories such as 'Imperial moustache' and 'Natural full beard more than 30cm'. 

Garey Faulkner, who won the third place in the freestyle full beard category, said that he tries to always create something new and different that has never been done each time he competes.

The championship has been held every two years in a different country since 1995. 

Beard and moustache enthusiasts will meet for the next competition in Auckland in New Zealand in 2021.
