What accessories do you need?

christmas beard accesories and decorations

For creating christmassy beards, you need some main accessories. Don’t worry, they are cheap and most of them can be found in almost every shop. Well, make sure you’ve got:

  • Small-sized Christmas balls
  • Small hair elastics
  • Black hairpins
  • A mini led string light
  • A small scissor
  • Some glitters
  • Mini Christmas tree-shaped decorations
  • Duo eyelash glue

After you make sure you have all these accessories, let’s move on to the funny part: installing them in a long beard.

How to install them in the beard

We’ve prepared three types of Christmas beard styles, based on the looks and personality you’re going for.

Festive Christmas Decorations Beard

Take a small hair elastic and a Christmas ball. Put the elastic through the hook of the Christmas ball.

When the elastic is in the middle, take one side of the elastic and pass it through the other side of the elastic, to make a knot.

Now you can use the remaining part of the elastic to attach it to the beard.

Grab a little section of beard and wrap the elastic around it multiple times, until it’s secured.

Do the same thing for the rest of the Christmas balls until you reach a full, shiny and Christmassy beard style. And Voilà!

Cute And Elegant Christmas Trees Beard

For this look, you’re going to need some mini Christmas tree shaped decorations (or whatever you want, you can use mini snowflakes, fake snow, etc.), and an eyelash glue. I’ve used the Duo Eyelash Adhesive, as I consider it being the most sticky and resistant. First of all, put a small amount of adhesive on a single side of the decoration and let it dry for approx. 30 seconds. Then, take them one by one and press for a few seconds until the decoration sticks to the beard or face. Do the same with all decorations and there you are, with a funny Christmas tree decorated beard.

Glamorous Glitter Beard

The glitter beard is the easiest one to do, but I’d recommend you to try it just when you’re sure that you desire a glitter beard. Why? Because… you’ll shine for a whole week, no matter how often or hard you wash your face after that. HA HA! But that’s the point, isn’t it? In order to achieve this look, all you have to do is pour some glitter in your hands and “wash” your beard with glitter. There you are, Tinkerbell. 😂

Well, I hope you enjoyed (and had some fun) seeing this Christmas beard tutorial and ideas that we’ve created for you. Whose idea was this? Well… maybe it’s better not to say it. But thanks to the ones who sacrificed themselves for us though. 😄

We’ve had loads of fun trying out this festive trend and here are some behind the scenes images and video to prove it.😊
