Madison Rowley, 30, USA

Category: Natural full beard (world champion in his category.)

“Two and a half years ago I started growing my beard. It changed my life completely. Many things change in the daily life. The way you sleep, the way you eat and the way you walk. Are working on the beach in windy weather, you have to work backwards to avoid getting hair in your eyes. On the other side, the beard is the best icebreaker in a social matter. Also I use the beard in my daily work. It helps the people I work with, to remember me, witch is a good thing when you work as a freelancer.
