Apparently there is a niche for everything, even totally bizarre beards and mustachesâ€"there are annual competitions where beard enthusiasts shine in all their furry-faced glory.

I had never really considered fashionable facial hair fashionable until viewing these photos and it is interesting to see the amount of hard work, time and effort that has been put into growing and maintaining these monstrous mustaches and bizarre beards.

Implications - Facial hair-inspired art is a popular consumer choice as it is often humor-infused. Hair, especially facial hair, has the power to define a person's face and look. In this image-obsessed world, art and photography that experiment with physical appearance and play with this obsession can send a powerful message, but also give the public something to laugh about.
