How to create a glitter beard this festive season

What is a Glitter Beard

Before we dive into the step-by-step guide, let's first understand what a glitter beard actually is. Picture this: a majestic beard adorned with shimmering specks of glitter, turning heads and spreading holiday cheer wherever it goes. It's like having a disco party on your face!

Step 1: Find a willing participant

The first step in creating a glitter beard is, well, having a beard. If you're already rocking a luscious facial mane, you're good to go. If not, don't worry! You can still join in on the glittery fun by finding a friend who's willing to lend their beard for this festive experiment or applying to your face regardless! Glitter beards are for everyone.

Step 2: Gather Your Glitter Arsenal

Now that you have a beard ready, it's time to gather your glitter arsenal. Make sure you check out our glitter beard set here for a fabulous range of festive colours, a bamboo toothbrush for application and choice of gels.

Step 3: Prepare Your Glitter Station

Creating a glitter beard can get messy, so it's important to set up a designated glitter station. Lay down some newspaper or a sheet to catch any runaway glitter. You don't want to leave a trail of sparkle everywhere you go (or maybe you do!).

Step 4: Apply Beard Oil Our Application Gel

Before diving headfirst into the glitter, prep your beard by applying some beard oil or one of our application gels. This will help the glitter adhere to your facial hair and make it easier to remove later. Plus, it adds a touch of extra shine to your already dazzling creation. If you're creating a glitter beard with no facial hair, make sure you use a gel with a strong hold.

Step 5: Get Glittery!

Now comes the fun part! Take the bamboo toothbrush and dip it in the sparkle and either tap or brush your beard. You can go for a subtle shimmer or go all out with a full-on glitter extravaganza. Experiment with different colours and patterns to create your own unique glitter masterpiece.

Step 6: Shake, Shake, Shake!

Once you've applied the glitter, give your head a gentle shake to remove any excess. This will help prevent leaving a trail of glitter wherever you go (unless, of course, you want to spread the holiday sparkle far and wide).

Step 7: Seal the Glittery Deal

To ensure your glitter beard stays put throughout the festivities, seal it with a spritz of hairspray. This will help lock in the glitter and keep it from shedding too much. Now you're ready to rock your glitter beard with confidence!

Step 8: Spread the Glittery Joy

Once your glitter beard is complete, it's time to spread the glittery joy to the world. Show off your dazzling creation at holiday parties, family gatherings, or even during your everyday adventures. Embrace the stares, the compliments, and the sheer awesomeness of your glitter beard!
Remember, creating a glitter beard is all about having fun and embracing your festive spirit. So go forth, glitter enthusiasts, and let your beards shine bright like a disco ball this holiday season!
