The MANjr crew stopped by the first annual Los Angeles Beard and Mustache Competition at the Federal Bar in North Hollywood on Sunday. Leading up to the event, the competition was featured in the LA Times, and, I mean this was the inaugural LA beard and stache bash, so we had to check it out.

The place was packed and there was a really open, festive vibe at the event. The competition featured five categories: Mustache, Partial beard, Business Beard, Full Beard Natural and Freestyle. Those who didn’t compete came to marvel at the bearding prowess of the contestants. And without a doubt, there were tons of sweet staches on display. And some seriously impressive beards that took years of effort to create.

Shawn Hasson took home the stache trophy and Jack Passion was awarded top beard honors. No controversy there. Both those guys looked like heavy favorites going into the finals. Take a look at some photos of the event and make sure to check out the video to see how the competition went down:
