The Fellowship of the Beard NZ started as a one‐man‐dream and became a community that not only encourages and supports the growing, styling and grooming of facial hair.
With numerous members spread across the country, The Fellowship opened the beard game in New Zealand by running the only National Beard & Moustache Competition in 2014. The event got bigger every year, gathering people from every corner of the country, and also visitors from other places such as Australia, Morocco and the United States. In 2021 we are bringing the Beard & Moustache World Championships to Auckland.
For us, facial hair is not just fun, but also a way of creating a strong community. One of the main goals of The Fellowship and our National Competition is to raise funds for charity, with Lifeline Aotearoa, Child Cancer Foundation and the Mental Health Foundation being some of the organisations we have helped.
