A Beard for the Ages

We have a champion in our midst! Jeff Langum of Voorhees, NJ was crowned winner of the “full natural” category at the World Beard and Moustache Championship in Germany last month. His mighty beard measured in at 17 inches from chin to tip.

His advice for budding beard-champions: “let it grow! You never know what you are capable of until you try. Don’t be afraid of negative comments in the beginning, because there is an itchy and awkward stage through which you must persist.”

A closeup of Jeff’s world-class beard and other facial hair photos and artifacts can be seen at our exhibit Beards: The Long and Short of It.
