Bearded Men Are Hot

If you have a thing for guys with facial hair, specifically beards, you should have been in Bavaria last weekend. The International German Beard Championships had 127 men from six countries competing for awards in 17 categories, including best natural beard and best Dali-style mustache. The men paraded their facial hair in front of a panel of judges, and much like a beauty pageant, it took some hours to get ready — one competitor admitted to spending four or five hours grooming for the event. Check out this slideshow of some noteworthy participants to find your new bearded crush. [Spiegel]
