Who will win this year’s Mustache and Beard Competition on Sept. 10 at Coney Island? Here’s our guide to understanding the different styles:

— Susannah Lark

The Old-Fashioned
Donny Vomit, one of the organizers of the event, rocks an 1880s ’stache that turns up at the ends.

The Natural
Myk O’Connor, a legend of the game, sports a foot-long natural that he says makes him feel like a man. He’s a two-time Coney winner, and this year is giving others a chance, and will be a judge instead.

The Selleck
Eric H. Brown, another two-time winner, sports a red mustache inspired by the “Magnum P.I.” star. This will be Brown’s first year competing in the “Natural” category.

The Bushman
Upstate New Yorker Steve Cline loves attention, so he goes with a big bushy goatee, complete with silvery gray flashes.
