Attention Hipsters! Glitterbeards are a thing

The most recent ​offence to taste and style comes in the form of the glitterbeard: a disconcerting trend on social media that requires men to dip their beards into glitter – reports Esquire.



First came the beard baubles, now hirsute hipsters wanting to get into the festive spirit can decorate their facial hair with glitter.

Brian and Jonathan from Portland Oregon, known online as TheGayBeards, have embraced the shimmering beard trend and released a how-to video.

Last year visual artist Katya Wildman from North London was specially commissioned to create a uniquely seasonal take on the Shoreditch beard trend for tech brand Samsung.
