Every year, bold men from around the nation blow-dry, slick back, and curl their facial hair into brilliantly epic designs for the National Beard and Moustache Championships, and this year’s contestants didn’t fail to impress.

The competition was documented by Las Vegas-based commercial photographer Greg Anderson, who traveled to Nashville to capture the charming participants’ faces. Each photo showcases the men’s specific personalities through carefully chosen outfits, props, and expressions. A competition for baffling beards and medal-worthy mustaches calls for nothing short than quirky, individualized photos to show off this unique craft.
