Last night the 2009 NYC Beard & Moustache Championships went down at Public Assembly in Williamsburg. The hairy set, and those who love them, were out in full force sporting everything from magnificent muttonchops to classic '70s porn 'staches. While competitions like this have been going on for years, certain facial hair looks are even more in fashion now with the popularity of recession chic on the rise. The winner of one prize even began growing his beard after being laid off five months ago as a financial broker, according to the Daily News. Wonder how many of the 80 contestants shaved this morning?
