Jeff Langum


Jeff, a former Microsoft engineer, decided to “Let it Grow” in September of 2011 & hasn’t shaved since. His beard took on a life of its own as it grew in so full that, it has been described as a Rising Sun or Lions Mane. Jeff started competing across the country and started winning many awards. He then decided to take his beard to the World Beard & Moustache Championships in Germany in 2013. Out of 300+ competitors from 20 different countries, Jeff won 1st place in the Full Beard Natural Category.
