This weekend saw the World Beard Championship in Anchorage—the unofficial whisker capital of America—and the most spectacular beards in the country are now available for your perusal.

David Traver took home the top spot for his faux-snowshoe chin-hanger, in spite of a somewhat suspicious dye job that, if we were judging, might have gotten him disqualified. The runners-up sported more interesting handlebar-style beards sporting a stately gray and an impressive quantity of wax (along with an eye-popping pink suit), but they were pretty advanced looks across the board.

In other words, don’t try this at home.
