Each one-of-a-kind ‘do simultaneously showcases the individual's unique style and the impressive extent of his hairstyling abilities. Many of the mesmerizing coiffures are abstract in design, composed of concentric circles, swirling shapes, and swooping lines. These dramatic looks emphasize length and focus on sculpting skills, and are often seemingly inspired by a steampunk aesthetic. Contrarily, some contestants took a theatrical approach to the competition, as they dramatically styled their facial hair to complement a range of clever costumes. Characters portrayed include a mustachioed music conductor, a bewhiskered gondolier, an exaggerated Elvis, and even a brooding, beard-covered werewolf.

This year's hairy hopefuls were documented by talented photographer Greg Anderson. Specializing in portraiture, Anderson captures the quirky characteristics of each contestant as he is expertly able to showcase his hair in the best light—literally. Fortunately, Anderson seems to enjoys the competition as much as we do. “This is my 4th year shooting this project,” he tells us, “and it just seems to keep getting better.”
