Arne Bielefeldt, 50, USA

Category: Full beard freestyle

“I started growing my beard in my youth as an activist. Back then it was only a matter of length. Normally the beard is not like this. On a normal day it would just be a long beard going to my navel. I always do the styling my self. I use six hours to set it like this. Six hours with cheap hair spray and a hairdryer, and then you have this result.”
