The year 2021 has arrived with a bang and it brings forward a bizarre yet fascinating facial trend for men- monkey tail beards.
When in the lockdown, we’re all bombarded with hobbies galore. But when it came to one fascination that stood far apart from all others in terms of creative brilliance, monkey tail beards left others far behind.
While some continue to bleach their hair in wild colors, others attempted to grow their tresses and manes to a great extent. But the monkey tail beard managed to give people a new hobby or look that shook things up.
In case you’re trying to picture how the whole thing works, well it’s basically a bloke that grooms his facial hair, beard and mustache included, into a look that appears like a long monkey tail shape.
Moreover, it runs down from one sideburn, reaches down to the jawline and chin, and then curls up and around the mouth’s side.The glory then ends right above the upper lip.
But how did the viral encounter actually enter into this year’s fashion scene? Well, we’ve got MLB Baseball player Mike Fiers to thank for it. Yes, the athlete was first seen donning the look at a game in September 2019. However, his look was more hairstyle related and for the sole purpose of getting a laugh from his teammates.
And now, news has it that the trend is taking over social media with a storm. In addition, people are adding more elements of drama to the bizarre look with spiral curls and stripes too. How’s that for shockingly interesting?
With hashtags comprising of aesthetic animals and drunken monkey trails, it’s an entertaining affair by all means. Moreover, some men seem to be embracing the fashion trend with open arms. But we can’t exclude those who are on the fence regarding the whacky affair.
In the same way, Twitter couldn’t hold still with comments and opinions firing left and right. But if we had to pick one that stole the show, it’s how one user wrote, ‘Monkey tail beards will 100% protect against unwanted pregnancies!” Yikes, at least someone is finding some humor in the matter.
