Women Compete In Los Angeles Beard and Mustache Competition (PHOTOS)

Who said a woman can't rock a good mustache? We've got photo evidence to prove ladies can get creative with facial hair -- even when it's not even theirs.

For the second year in a row, dozens of participants flocked to the Los Angeles Beard and Mustache competition to show off their their 'do's and have a little fun, the Los Angeles Times reports. Among the hairy crowd were some fearless females hoping to snag a winning spot in the Whiskerina category -- a faux facial hair competition for women.

According to the competition's website, the Whiskerina category urges female contestants to be creative and "show what the good lord neglected to give you and show us what could have been."

And women wasted no time using their imaginations and items like rope, feathers and flowers to construct the perfect beard and mustache.

In the end, three ladies -- Killo Kitty, Emily Abravaya and Lindsay Stinner -- outshined the competition to earn the top three spots in the category, according to the Times.

Hosted by the Los Angeles Beard and Mustache Club, the event took place at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, June 24.

According to the event website, the contest featured eight other categories, including natural mustache, business beard, goatee, sideburns/muttonchops, groomed beard, styled mustache, full beard natural and freestyle.

Members of the L.A. Beard and Mustache Club have even competed in the World Beard and Moustache Championship.

Take a look at some of the awesome facial hair-styles below, and keep an eye out for those funky feminine beards!
