Badger Beard: Natural Beard of any colour that has distinct stripes.

Garibaldi:  Big Bushy rounded beard so thick you can lose items in it…

Full Beard Natural: Full set that has been left to grow out as nature intended… a little cultivation/trimming can have occurred to keep it in check and a comb put through it.

Full Beard Freestyle: Anything goes, you can style your full beard however you want, use all manner of product, colourings, hairsprays and waxes as long as the base of your creation is your naturally occuring facial hair. Let your imagination be your inspiration.

Partial Beard Freestyle: Partial beard is any beard that isn’t a full set, you can style your Partial Beard however you want, use all manner of product, colourings, hairsprays and waxes as long as the base of your creation is your naturally occuring facial hair. Let your imagination be your inspiration.

Creative, False Beard Freestyle: This is the category for those of you who can’t grow a beard, either because you are a child, usually because you are a woman or because you just naturally have a baby face 😉 Your false beard can be made to look as real as possible or as spectacularly unreal as possible and made from whatever material you happen to have laying around. Themed or artistic beards are an especially good with both the Judges and the spectating crowd… dress up, have fun! take a look at the Whiskerinas for inspiration
