Putting Glitter In Your Beard Is The New Putting Flowers In Your Beard

Putting Glitter In Your Beard Is The New Putting Flowers In Your Beard: via Instagram

As if the man bun wasnโ€™t bad enough, men continue to insist on putting stuff in their beards. Even though the beard is a face accessory to begin with, and adding to that amounts to accessorizing an accessory and is thus as redundant as wearing a belt and suspenders, the trend of bedazzling beards continues unabated.

In the summer of 2014, guys were all about adorning their facial hair with flowers. Now, with Movember coming to a close, #flowerbeard has been eclipsed by #glitterbeard.

Spurred on by YouTubers who dub themselves The Gay Beards, men have started sprinkling glitter in their beards and posting the results on social media. While the Gay Beards other videos, ranging from how to tie-dye a beard to, yes, how to put flowers in it, receive a few thousand views, the glitter beard tutorial has already been watched more than 82,000 times in a month.

The resulting glitter beards that have been posted on Instagram are a diverse lot. There is someone that works at Live with Kelly and Michael:

Peter loves his new #glitterbeard!! #kellyandmichael #glitter #hairtrends

There is this Minnesota Vikings fan:

Some guys are even using the trend to get into the holiday spirit:

I think that itโ€™s time to put the christmas decorations up soon ๐ŸŽ„โ„๐Ÿ”ด๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŽ„

But there have been haters:

NO! NO! NO! Meeeery Christmas! #sybrandsbaard #beard #glitterbeard #glitterbaard

It remains to be seen where this movement is headed. Perhaps thereโ€™s a way for the glitter beard trend to link up with dabbing. However, itโ€™s more likely that someone will put something else in his beard and start something completely different. Ketchup beard? Iphone beard? The possibilities are endless.
