If you think the bearded lady is just for the traveling circus, then the 2014 Southeastern Beard and Moustache Championship has a surprise for you. The annual competition is back for its fifth year and ready to judge men and women alike on how fierce their facial hair is. No, women don’t actually have to grow a beard but can instead enter the ladies artificial category, with the gal rocking the most creative or realistic faux facial hair being crowned the winner. Men will also compete in quirky categories such as the Salty Dog, where distinguished mature gentlemen with gray beards will be judged on the quality of their hair. And the young gents aren’t excluded either. They can compete in the College Beard category, which is just for those enrolled in college or recent May graduates between the ages of 18 and 24. While the competition just seems like a fun time, the proceeds from the event help women. “The goal is to raise awareness for the Center for Women and Lowcountry Women with Wings,” event organizer Paul Roof says. “It is always good when men with beards do something positive with their facial hair and for the opposite sex.” The Southeastern Beard and Moustache Championship partnered with Lowcountry Women with Wings after Roofs’ wife’s coworker, Sue Summer-Kresse, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. “Sue is a survivor and every year accepts the check on behalf of Lowcountry Women with Wings,” Roof says.
