If you're anything like me then you're just hearing about this new trend. I'm not one to troll around Instagram all looking for the latest and greatest things so I'm a little behind on this, It wasn't until a lady friend of mine ask me if I've heard about "glitter beards".
I'm always looking for a way to give people the content they are looking for and if I played for the other team (demographic mostly associated with this trend) then I'd glitter the hell out of my beard too so here's a little guide on how to do it as well as some history behind how it came about.
Glittering Your Beard In 3 Simple Steps
Step 1 - Clean Your Beard
This thing is going to get funky after a while of wearing it and you're going to feel like you're wearing a pile of dirt rather than glitter unless you throughly clean it first.
Step 2 - Apply Beard Oil
If you've never done this before then just follow the advice I give on my best beard oil 2017 review page. The only difference is that you're going to dowse your beard and make sure that every place you want glitter is damp.
Step 3 - Apply Glitter
There are two ways you're going to need to apply this, first start by tilting your head back and sprinkling it with glitter, this will give you a good base. Then depending on how thick you want the coverage you'll need to lightly pat handful's of glitter into your beard and mustache.
It's really that simple, I would love to tell you that there is an art to it but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to glitter something, just crazy enough to do it!
Why Would You Ever Want To Do This?
If you're not "playing for the other team" then you're probably wondering why you would ever want to do this right? Well let me give you a real life example of how you could use this.
After a long night of wandering the streets with friends I come home to the typically accusation "You went to the strip club!" due to a piece of glitter on my shirt. If you've ever been to old town Scottsdale then you've seen the bottle service comes with giant poppers that cover you in glitter so rather than fight the good fight I just let it go.
The following time I went out with friends I planned a heard and stocked up at Michael's that morning. Before returning home in a state of liquid courage I stopped by one of the guy's houses and put on a full glitter beard.
As you can guess my statement "Look honey, I went to the Stripclub and they really like me there" went over well, what a fun relationship that was.
The last thing I'll say is make sure you use glitter, don't use random types of cereal in your beard. Good day!
