As the facial hair trend continues to gain mainstream attention, Remington and its Beard Boss brand plan to sponsor the 2016 Great American Beard and Moustache Championship.
The North American Competitive Beard and Moustache Alliance (NACBMA) said it has been working for five years to develop the ultimate in championships, now made possible with corporate partner Remington and other sponsors.
The championship will be held at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, CO, on September 24, and is being hosted by the Boulder Facial Hair Club and the Rocky Mountain Beard and Moustache Club.
According to NACBMA, it has brought on a team of qualified, high profile judges, and hair types will be judged in four categories: Artistic, Moustache, Full Beard and Partial Beard.
Proceeds from the event will go to two service organizations: Fisher House Foundation, which provides a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment, and Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance, a Denver-based non-profit organization that provides financial assistance for the basic living needs of cancer patients receiving treatment in Colorado.
