Judge: Becky Jones

Becky JonesBecky is responsible for the fantastic freestyle facial fuzz sported by Brendan Johnson at beard competitions across the country. In her own words…

Becky was a tad surprised 3 years ago to hear that her husband was planning to drive with his sister to Stuttgart for 2 nights to look at a load of blokes with beards.

Since their return from that escapade, she has been increasingly involved in the ‘grooming and styling’ arm of the competitive bearding community, which she likens to Crufts. Becky does the styling and a lot of the grooming – Brendan gets the attention in the Freestyle category. Thankfully there is no obedience or agility section to worry about!

Becky loves a beardy weekend and really enjoys the company of the beardy folks because it’s a fun, open, accepting and slightly eccentric bunch of people. What’s not to like?

She will be looking for a touch of panache and character in the successful show-dogs, and promises not to feel any bits of them besides the facial hair…
