First and foremost this is a facial hair competition. Dressing up, dressing the part, and/or costumes are encouraged but not required. The competitors love it and the spectators love it too, but the competition is about the facial hair(only). ...
Secondly, all reference to the word "aids" is in reference to wax, mousse, hairspray, gel, etc. NO structural enhancements are permitted (wires, rubber-bands, etc.). All styled facial hair must be real hair grown and still growing on your face.

Lastly, a competitor may only enter one category. The creative mustache and beard categories are the only exception to this rule. >More
