Earlier this month, the European Beard and Moustache Championships took place on the Austrian Alps and featured some of the craziest and most intricate mustache and beard designs. This event is truly an artistic exhibition of facial hair and how a man can manipulate his 'stache for some cash.

The European Beard and Moustache Championships had 17 hairy categories, from 'Freestyle Beard,' to 'Natural Moustache.' It is undeniably great (and humorous) to see that contests are held for these curly designs, considering the time and effort they require to maintain.
