Meanwhile on Instagram, men have been sporting a glitter beard… For those who wish to participate in this trend and help to pollute our planet with microplastics here’s what you must do: Step 1: Grow a beard. Step 2: Put some glitter in it. Step 3: Post a picture on Instagram with #GlitterBeard tag. Step 4: Collect your likes.
Short history of glitter beard: the reason behind this trend in beard style is the Instagram duo known as @TheGayBeards. Composed of Johnathan and Brain, both of whom have beards, The Gay Beards started the trend of adding glitters to facial hair in 2017 when they decided to style theirs that way and posted it on their social media pages. The fact that the two are fun-loving people who are not too concerned about conventionality is one reason why others also started to follow their example.
You would probably not be surprised that glitter beard is not the only weird Instagram trend involving glitter. People are also putting in their armpits, on their butts, and even licking it. We truly live in an amazing time of brilliant self-expression, don’t we?
