Glitter Beards Are Here Just In Time For The Holidays

Glitter and beards? Two of our favourite things.

If you're still recovering from the news that flower beards were a thing, you might want to sit down for this one...

Get out your craft boxes gentlemen, because glitter beards are the latest facial hair trend to sweep the Internet, just in time for the holidays!

First, let these men show you how it's done:

Proven: all that glitters is gold.

Now are you thinking to yourself, "Hey, I wouldn't mind rocking a glitter beard to my office Christmas party"?

Well, the dudes behind The Gay Beards are here to guide you. In the majestic video above, Brian Delaurenti and Johnathan Dahl (who literally attach anything possible to their beards), have blessed facial hair enthusiasts with a tutorial on how to glitter their scruff for the most wonderful time of the year.

To begin the process, you'll need two key weapons to achieve the look: beard oil and of course, glitter.

Start by soaking your beard in a lush beard oil (this will allow the glitter to stick onto something). Then, get ready for a mess that will probably take you six months to clean up: drowning your beard in a million tiny bedazzling sparkles.


So if your girl is flaunting some spiffy new glitter roots this holiday season, go ahead and match her with your new, shimmering glitter beard.

Warning: may be messy to kiss someone under the mistletoe with.
