Impressive facial hair has seen two Rugby men win awards in the British Beard and Moustache Championships 2016.

Lee Andrews and Steve Fox impressed judges with their impeccable bushy beards last weekend.

They were up against some of the best groomed facial hair in the country at the competition, held at St George’s Hall in Liverpool.

Lee said: “I’ve taken part in four competitions this year including the British championship and won all four in my class.

“I won styled tash beard under 12 inches and Steve won his class styled tash beard under 6 inches his first competition.”

Lee and Steve both get their beards and hair trimmed at Mr Robinson’s in Rugby.

“We must pay tribute to Matt Robinson,” he said.

“He is well known in Rugby for beard care. He really is an awesome, successful barber.”

Lee is beard master general of Beard Club on social media, which has a staggering 3.5k members worldwide.

“We are a real brotherhood and believe in helping charity. We are a big family and promote positive action, gentlemanly behaviour and honourable conduct.”
