Flower Beards … Are they really a Trend now?


Big, Bushy Beards are receiving a whole lot of media attention; recently many young men from all over the world (and internet) are adopting this interesting and scruffy look.
The Large beards are often associated with a hipster culture,( though many men would hate to admit that .)

In some cities, this trend has become so popular; it is now inspiring trends to counteract the trend itself.

Early in the year the New York Times declared beards to be officially a mainstream trend. Some now say, that with the New York Times declaring this look a trend, this means it becomes the complete opposite. They couldn’t be more wrong.

The streets and almost all forms of social media are packed with these bearded men young and old. And some of these men have taken it to a whole new level, creating a trend out of another trend. Insert; “The Flower Beard”.

 
While pictures of men with flowers in their beards can be found as far back as the 70’s, This summer it has taken on a life of its own. Thanks in most part to the World Wide Web, we are now seeing “The flower beard “, everywhere we look.beard4
If one searches #FlowerBeard on Instagram alone, you will come up with thousands of pictures, all showing men of all ages, size and race, with flower beards of any style you can imagine.

The trend has really launched itself online this July after a blog dedicated only to flower beards was created.
In more recent weeks, the flower beard has blossomed (pun intended), to a whole new level, with 100’s of photos being found everywhere from fashion websites, professional portfolios, and even from the social media feeds of the everyday woman, having a little fun at the expense of their significant others and male friends.

 

So what do you think? Trend? No trend? Would you ( or a bearded friend) try it?
