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:
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.

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.

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