“After growing a moustache for Movember 5 years back a good friend of mine showed me some pictures of men with amazing facial hair.
“My friend then bet me that I wouldn't dare grow one like them - never been one to step away from a dare and so here I am, and couldn't imagine life with out it!
“As my facial hair grows very slowly it took some time for me to figure out what my style was going to be.
“I attended my first ever competition, The British Beard and Moustache Championships 2016 in Liverpool; I soon realised I am a Musketeer, and being such a unique style, it really gets me noticed when going about my daily life.
“I intended on growing my facial hair as long as I can for as long as I can and I also intend on taking part in as many competitions as I can because they are awesome! ”
