This year is indeed the year of strange beauty trends, but not only for women. The latest trend among bearded men, apparently, is the beard lights. Now, we know you’re very much puzzled. In fact, we were once too! But lo and behold! This trend is actually very in time especially now that is Christmas time!
Trends involving facial hair are nothing new, really. This year we had seen at least two of them; beard baubles (involving Christmas ornaments hanging on your beard) and glitter beards (yes, literally). But nothing would be able to prepare us for this super hipster-y, complicated trend.
The trend’s origin is nothing other than the annual Christmas Makers Market in East Village E20, London and is named “London’s Hippest Postcode”. The annual market is set to be open on Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends running, and has been opened since November 26th. If you want to pay a visit, make sure you come between 11am-6pm on Saturdays and 11am-4pm on Sundays. Only then, you’d be able to try out this unique trend. In the #PimpMyTree pop-up unit established across the market, you can get your beard done for FREE. Yes, the beard lights trend isn’t just eccentrically beautiful; all you need to do is pay the stand a visit and you can promptly share quirky pictures of lights on your beard.
The Christmas look is also very colorful, since you can also choose to use several colored lights all together. If you’d like something simpler, however, you’re free to choose a one-colored lights look. Either way, this trend, despite harsh criticisms on how unpractical it is, doesn’t seem to die down anytime soon.
Keep being AllDayChic!
