The Cuban Bristle Crisis is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier, Heavy, and Engineer. It is a neatly kept beard and mustache. The beard connects up to the Heavy's hairline. A cigar rests on his lips, similar to the Soldier's Stogie.

The Cuban Bristle Crisis was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "The Cuban Cover Up".
