Facial hair enthusiasts gather for NZ beard and moustache competition

Facial hair enthusiasts from all over the country gathered in Auckland last night to be judged in the fifth year of the New Zealand beard and moustache competition.

Landscaper Mark Van Kaathoven was one of the winners last year.

His beard earns him plenty of attention and even the odd job.

“The guy got me standing against the wall, did a mugshot, and he said, 'I'll be in contact,' so within a month he was in contact and I ended up doing Newmarket Santa, Ponsonby Santa, Sky City Santa, it was hilarious,” he said.
