*You don’t have to try this at home. (But you can!)
1. Flower power beards
Men around the world have been pictured with flower arrangements in their bushy beards. It is difficult to figure out how this look came about, but you know your spiritual, hippie mate is down with it.
2. The over groomed beards
We all know one. Your mate who goes to the barbers and gets a little bit too much work done on his beard. This bro loves his beard more than anything and truly sees it as his biggest asset. Lots of attention is paid.
3. The goatee
This one has become a classic. The only problem is no one has ever looked that good with it. Your mate insists it makes him look more interesting, but you are not so sure. There must be a reason why the goatee has been around for so long, we’re just not sure what it is!
4. All that glitters
Now, this is an interesting one! Glitter beards took over Instagram last winter and people loved them. It looks like they’ll be making a comeback this year too. There are even tutorials on how to get your own glitter beard at home. We will be giving that a go!
