Brace yourselves as glitter beards are coming. A new trend is hijacking the holiday season and in the best of ways.
Glitter Beard follows last year’s Bauble Beard and is here just in time for holiday sparkles. Literally sparkles, as those endowed with the trend-alert facial hair are uploading images of the glitter-decorated beard. What a sight it is!
Jump started by infamous Jonathan and Brian, TheGayBeards of Youtube, Glitter Beard is quickly catching on. With a brilliantly sparkling first appearance, the duo drew thousands of positive comments and pleas to reveal the secret behind the Glitter Beard.
TheGayBeards could not disappoint their fans and followers. So check out their video, easily accessible with one search and you’ll hear:
“The glitter beards are actually not that hard to pull off”.
Learn from the masters as they guide you step by step through the artful technique of the Glitter Beard. Arm yourselves with oil/hair spray, full bottles of glitter in the colors of your choice, and a lot of patience. Step one: trim the crown jewel on your face properly. Do not leave the tiniest hair out as glitter will only make it more evident.
Step two: prepare the beard with beard oil. Step three: start applying the glitter in patches. Step four: admire your festive facial hair. Step five: acknowledge the risks you’re assuming – sticky glitter bound to linger for a while and a little less mistletoe action. Otherwise, Glitter Beard is nothing short of fabulous and Brian and Jonathan pull it off impeccably.
It’s all about the distinctive facial hair trends lately. Last year’s festive beard was dubbed the Bauble Beard. Started by Grey London advertising agency, the Bauble Beard was exactly that: a major hit in several countries where beards were decorated with colorful baubles to keep the holiday spirit alive and kicking.
This year Bauble Beard was dethroned by Glitter Beard. Perhaps the two trends could mix…though to each its own. Glitter Beard is already taking over social media. Give it a try if you’re the proud owner of a nifty beard and make it a nifty festive beard. For everyone else, brace yourselves as glitter beards are coming.
