Northern California Beard and Moustache Competition comes to FolsomBy: Anne Stokes / Telegraph Correspondent
Folsom's Powerhouse Pub hosted the second Northern California Beard and Moustache Competition Saturday night, drawing nearly a hundred competitors and their fashionable follicles. With thirteen different categories, including all manner of beards, mustaches, sideburns, and even a creative category for women, spectators and enthusiasts were treated to a wide variety of styles.
"Each category has it's own description of what the judges are looking for," explained Ryan Scalise, President of the Moustache & Beard Social Club, a local chapter of Beard Team USA. "For some categories it's density, color, or how the beard, mustache, or sideburns accentuate their overall appearance."
First, second, and third place winners received custom made trophies and bragging rights.
"Facebook will be blowing up," said Scalise.
