While the trend appears to bizarre for a few, many are simply not able to look away from it.
An anti-climatic Halloween has come and gone followed by a much more intense few days of elections. With more drama yet to unfold in the political spectrum, we might do with taking a step back into the most awaited time of the year - the holiday season. The festive time of the year is almost here and there are new trends popping up everywhere. People have been decorating Christmas trees in various different styles and even in themes of their favorite Disney movies. These innovative changes aren't limited to inanimate objects as women have been dressing up their hair in a Christmas tree fashion. Now, we have a trend of men who are accessorizing their beards with Christmas fairy lights, and we are far from disappointed at the result, Fox News reports.
The upcoming Christmas parties will need you to be at your very best, won't they! Despite the pandemic still going on, the general feeling is that people are going to be more relaxed this December than they have been all year. So if you are looking for a good way to keep up with all the latest trends, and also happen to have a thick rugged beard to flaunt, we have thought of a fantastic idea for you to become the center of attention. It looks like men from all over the world are putting on Christmas lights as part of their holiday accessorization, where they are turning their beard into colorful mini-Christmas trees. Yes, you read that right. The trend, popularly known as #BeardLights, started after an online gift shop began selling Christmas lights that were specially created for beards.
When we looked further into this, we found out that these lights for beards are actually powered by a portable battery and they clip onto your beard with no stress whatsoever. It's just like plugging in your regular Christmas lights except, this is right on your beard. But beware, don't put on the lights while your beard is wet or if you're heading outside when it's raining. Otherwise, these lights are absolutely safe to wear. Needless to say, if you wear these beard lights to a party, they are guaranteed to make you stand out and you will definitely make a statement during the family get-together.
People who have purchased these lights have left rave reviews. One person wrote: Absolutely hysterical and was one of the main talking points during Christmas in our house. Lovely bright LEDs, good functions, and apparently the clips were comfortable! A second one wrote: Bought [this] as a joke gift for Christmas for my daughter's husband who has a very bushy beard. Thought the kids would love it. Brilliant product bought for my hairy son. Lit up his night shift. Yet another overwhelmingly positive review stated: "These things are wonderful. They light up and blink slowly. Yeah, getting them activated is a little bit of a pain, but hardly a big deal. You take them apart, pull out the little tab that separates the batteries, and it activates. To deactivate, just put the tab back between the batteries again."
A spokesperson for the beard lights wrote: "Not got room for a Christmas tree in your dismally small rental flat? Don’t bother with one of those dinky desk-sized ones, just get these and make yourself the tree this year. Basically, it’s fairy lights for your beard, and each light changes color and flashes—they clip on super easily—facial hair not included". They are priced at $15 and features 18 multicolored nano LED bulbs that will make your beard the most colorful thing this festive season. Well, if you do decide to get these, they will certainly make for some amazing pictures that will last forever.
