Guys, I’m really sorry for, like, all of this.
Metro has recently reported that the latest trend is here and it’s real – although we have our doubts, as we did with glitter beards – and is “exactly what it sounds like: gently placing delicate flowers into your thick, lustrous beard. This is how you embrace spring. This is how you show off your fun, fashion-y side while staying office appropriate.” I embrace spring by breaking out my lighter jacket, going for a hike, and enjoying the warmer weather. Was I supposed to be smashing my face into a pile of azaleas this whole time?
Not surprisingly, this new look is being spread around Instagram with the help of several users, including @thegaybeards – the same dynamic duo who were instrumental in kicking off the glitter beard trend.
With any luck, this will be over before it develops into a full-fledged social media frenzy. Until then just resist the urge to treat your face like a woodland garden, and stick to beard oil.
