Neil Moherman (left) from Ashland, Ohio and Bryan Fulk (right) from Los Angeles, California have been best friends far longer than they’ve been able to grow beards–their moms were girl scout troop leaders together in Ohio when they were kids. Neil, who entered the Full Beard, Natural competition, came out with top honors–earning the prestigious Gold Medal–and has been growing his long, blonde, beardlocks for five years. Both Neil and Bryan went to the World Championships in Anchorage, Alaska a few years ago, and got hooked on bearding. While Bryan competed in the Verdi Beard category in Anchorage, he was in Vegas solely for moral support this time around. All we know is that we’d hang out with this dashing bearded duo anytime they’re around.
