The LABMC was founded by John Myatt upon his return from the first Beard Team USA National Beard and Mustache Championships in 2010. Recognizing that Los Angeles was not well represented at the National competition, he vowed to bring bearding to LA.
Two years later, the LABMC has grown exponentially with members joining from greater LA County and beyond. Each new member that shows up to a monthly meeting reminds me of my own first meeting…

A man with a beard walked in the door and we made eye contact. He walked over, pulled a card … Read More »
With a solid turnout, cooperative weather (for the most part), short lines, and veins filled with adrenaline – we conquered the Mountain.
There were several highlights from our trip, including:
the worst train ride ever
the fondling of Bugs Bunny’s concealed chesties
beard blasting pyrotechnics on X2
the 255ft, voice-silencing drop of Goliath
Dan Lawlor sneaking into the pop-a-shot carnival game booth
the rockin’ Pirate Ship
Whirly Swing video (see below)
the near-ejection of Makayla Lynn from the Gold Rusher train car
the Carousel Nightcap
and much, much more.

7 members of the LABMC traveled northbound in late January to compete and watch the 2012 West Coast Beard and Mustache Championships in Portland, Oregon.
What was a whirlwind trip for myself (Steve McQuaide) and John Myatt, was a successful trip for club members Jeffrey Moustache and Gabrielle Moss – who both took home trophies in their respective categories.
But the real winners were Steve Scarpa and Savannah Flansburg. Not only did Steve bring home the 2nd place trophy for Styled Moustache over 6 inches, but he also brought home a wife!
After what was a very well run competition that included 12 categories (10 men, 2 fake beards) that we’re very big-beard focused. And it made sense. Portland is the land of big natural beards – with impressive face parkas around every corner.
The LABMC also attended our first meeting of the North … Read More »
We traveled across the country to participate in the National Beard and Mustache Championship on October 8, 2011. The LABMC had 7 club members compete in Mustache, Partial Beard, Groomed Beard and the Whiskerinas National Fake Beard and Mustache competition. And we brought home the hardware.
Partial Beard: Nate Johnson, 3rd pace
Groomed Beard: John Myatt, 1st place.
Enjoy the gallery of photos taken by our very own, Jeffrey Moustache.
