Beard baubles: the new Christmas accessory for men
They used to be just for the Christmas tree, but baubles now have a new pride of place: on men’s beards.
Women have Christmas nail art, while blokes have started decking out their facial hair with shiny baubles, making them the new must-have festive accessory.
The credit goes to London advertising agency Grey London for starting the craze, selling the unlikely hair decoration to men in the UK, US, Germany, France and even Australia.
The baubles – which retail for £5.00 or about $9.50 a packet – have been flying off shelves, with Grey London employee Ollie Dearn saying the agency has “sold more than we ever expected”.

Each pack contains 14 multi-coloured baubles to attach to your whiskers: ten large balls and four small ones (so your man can tailor his Christmas beard to suit his taste).
At the moment the trend has a definite hipster vibe, but I think I speak for the whole bh office when I say we’d absolutely LOVE to see this one go mainstream.

After all, 2014 has been the year of the beard – you only have to look at bh’s Luke in our how-to: style your beard at home to see why.
