Unless you've been in a cave or busy combing your ZZ Top-inspired facial 'do, you are no doubt aware the 2015 World Beard and Mustache Championships took place last weekend.

The hair-raising event was held in Austria and featured the kind of beards and mustaches you would normally expect to see, well, nowhere.

The competition, which featured more than 300 men (and we're hoping no women) was not broadcast on Esquire TV or any of the 38 Fox and ESPN channels that exist, so it may have been tough to get a look at the crazy looks that were on display. Fortunately, we're here to show you the best of the best and the weirdest of the weirdest. Enjoy.
