Fashionbeard

Fashionbeard

Fashionbeards are short trimmed and shaped or patterned. Hairs are not allowed to be longer than 1 cm. There is no limit in design or shape. Only the beard as far as the hairline will be rated. A considerable part of the face had to be shaved. Crucial for the jury’s decision will be neatness, tidiness and design.

Styling aid* is = beard polish, hairs spray, hair lacquer, sryling mousse, hair wax, hair gel etc.!

Not permitted are = hair extensions, hair pins, supporting elements or some such. Also it is not permitted to treat the facial skin beneath the beard with colour (i.e. black) to enhance the beard optically!

The facial hair should appear naturaly and not too „styled“. On principle factitious or gaudily hair colours are not allowed. Face masks and too painted faces are not permitted

Facial Hairs must be pointed from the hairs on the head, they should not be integrated. Any cover of the head had to be chosen that the facial hair can be judged without any obstacles.

The images of the Freestyle classes are left wilfully. Your own fantasy and creation are in demand. Every competitor should be able to take care of his facial hairs, some assistance is permitted.

The images of the other classes are only leads to the kind of the corresponding facial hairs. Everybody should wear his facial hairs in the frame of these descriptions but mainly fitting to his face and personality.

The English translation is a „version“ of the German template. The English version may give those without enough skills in German a better understanding. Therefore the German Original is the only validated.

It is important to know that a literal translation not always catch the same meaning in both languages. An example is the German word “Bart” in English beard. In German “Bart” is the collective term for all kind and shapes of facial hair. So if Germans talk about “Bart/beard” don't wonder when they name a moustache or a whisker also a beard.
