The competition for the most beautiful German beard was held yesterday in the city of Egging am See, in the Lower Bavaria region in southeastern Germany.
About 100 bearded people competed against each other in several categories such as “Dali”, “Imperial” or “Knight”.
“The beard care is actually the most important thing,” said Christian Weicht, president of the Beard Club in East Bavaria and the Great Mustache Club, which organized the competition, noting that the ends of the broken beard would not fit the jury, and the mass of the beard is also important, both density and length are important. .
“The more mass the contestant had, the more he had to style his hair,” Faicht said, noting that the contestant’s appearance also subconsciously made an impression on the jury.
The organizing body expected the arrival of participants from Germany – especially from its south – and also from the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Israel.
A jury of seven top hairdressers and barbers chose the best beards.
There were various competitions: the main categories were divided into “mustache”, “chin with cheek” and “full beard”, reaching sub-disciplines such as “Dali” – the model of the pointed mustache of the painter Salvador Dali – or the full beard “Verdi”.
There are also free categories and ‘normal’ categories, in which aids such as nebulizers may not be used.
The beard Olympics was open to all bearded people, and for the German championship, the contestant had to live in this country or at least belong to a beard club.
