BEARD COMPETITION CATEGORIES
thinking of joining a competition, here are the categories
Facial hair on the upper lip.
No facial hair 1.5 sm past the corner of the mouth.
Grow it as it grows. No styling aids allowed.
Yep, looks like Dali. Whiskers turned upwards.
The stache is slender, straight, generally styled with styling aids, and slightly upturned at the ends.
Small and bushy with upturned tips.
Big and bushy.
Probably the most confusing and exacting of categories. No hairs can touch the temple (except for the sideburns) and some styles include chin hairs while other forbid them.
Grow as it grows. No styling aids allowed.
It looks like a narrow beard or soul patch topped with an English Mustache.
A downward mustache without any hair on the chin. Hair restricted to 2 cm outside the mouth.
Go crazy but keep the area between the temple and goatee clean, min of 4 cm must be clean shaven.
Imperial / Kaiser Beard
Hair from the upper lip extends to the cheeks and turns upwards, but must be clean shaven for at least 4 cm between the temple and beard.
Partial Beard Freestyle
Anything goes above the chin (no chin hairs) with the exception of 4 cm between the temple and hair.
An American addition and not common for all competitions, the sideburns can touch the temple.
Full Beard Natural: Grow beard grow. Come as you are but no styling aids permitted.
Full Beard Natural

Full Beard Styled Moustache
The beard is natural, no styling aids but the mustache can be aided, although it cannot extend beyond 1.5 cm past the corner of the mouth.
This beard should be short and rounded and is not to exceed 10 cm from the bottom of the lower lip. The mustache, you got it, no more than 1.5 cm past the corner of the mouth.
