Moustache: The moustache is the hair that grows on the upper lip but can also include hairs growing from elsewhere on the face that are a natural extension of the shape of the moustache. Moustaches can be completely natural or styled. Examples: Fu Manchu, handlebar, horseshoe, toothbrush, etc.

Partial Beard- This category includes all styles of facial hair that are neither full beards nor solely moustaches. "A category for the others".
Examples: sideburns, van dykes, goatees, soul patches, mutton chops, and imperials. 

Groomed Beard- This category is for shorter beards groomed by means of shaving and trimming. There must be an unbroken line of unshaven face from the temple to the chin to the other temple. Styled or natural moustaches allowed.

Full Beard Natural- Portions of the cheeks can be partially shaved as can the neck, but there must be an unbroken line of unshaven face from the temple to the chin to the other temple. Length is important, but isn't everything. This category is for beards that have been allowed to achieve their natural fullness, size, shape, and overall impression. No styling aids.

Freestyle- sculpt it, spin it, paint it, twirl it. Anything goes. In this category the judges will determine which contestant's facial hair is the most creative and artistic. Costumes encouraged but not mandatory.

Ladies – fake it ‘till you make it and be crowned Princess of the 2013 beard and moustache competition. No "finger staches" allowed! Moustache or beard must be on your face.
