Judge: Ryan Pike

Ryan PikeRyan can regularly be seen at beard and moustache competitions across the UK and further afield. He’s also one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. (And daftest, but you can’t have everything!) In his own words…

Born and raised in the West Country, Ryan is a proud member of both The Handlebar Club (HBC) and the West Vlaamse Snorrenclub (Brugge Moustache Club).

Originally growing a moustache for November 2011 and shaving it off, his daughter said he ‘was no longer Dad without one’ so he quickly had to grow it back and has had one ever since.

A competitor in nearly every UK and European event over the last few years, Ryan is currently ranked the UK No. 2 and World No. 11 Natural Moustache and is well known at nearly all facial hair clubs and establishments across both the country and continent, often appearing in time-honoured HBC fancy dress or tweed.
