Here's another look at Jason's beard! You got to admit... a beard like this requires real commitment to facial fuzz.

Aarne Bielefeldt takes home the third place for his full beard. That’s some fun fuzz, isn’t it? Does he use curlers for the ends? #Justasking.

These moustaches are no laughing matter. They take time to grow and great patience to maintain. And we are guessing, these guys don't own razors at home! The second and first place in the full beard styled category.
