Best at the 2012 National Beard Championship in Las Vegas

Find out how the “wings of destiny” beard style translates

The 2012 National Beard and Moustache Championships are held in Las Vegas this year, and this video presents some of the quirky facial hair styles featured in the competition.

At the beginning of the clip, Hercule Poirot appears to pop up, along with several other dashing looking gentlemen.

One user dubs his do the “imperial partial beard,” where hair is grown on the cheeks and upper lip. The “wings of destiny,” pointing towards the sky, complete the look.

An interesting looking participant freestyles his beard to complete his Santa look. He wears a pink costume, and twists his beard in the shape of a very complex bagel.

Since it is Movember and styling your beard and moustache is not social suicide, check out our gallery of mugshots that celebrate this special month.
