About

Flower Beards is a men’s fashion trend that involves decorating one’s facial hair with floral arrangements. In contrast to the flower crowns for men which evolved into a photoshop meme in 2013, the flower beards are actually worn by men and shared online in the form of a photo fad.

Origin

The earliest known flower beard photo was taken of Soup.io[1] user erial’s father in 1977 (shown below).



On January 27th, 2013, photographer Sarah Winward[11] published a blog post titled “Flower Beards,”[10] which featured photographs of a man with various types of vegetation sticking out of his facial hair (shown below).



Spread

On October 16th, 2013, actress Kirsten Dunst tweeted a link to a gallery of Winward’s photographs.[9] On February 5th, 2014, blogger Pierre Thiot launched the Tumblr[1] blog “Will It Beard,” in which he highlights photographs of various objects placed in his facial hair (shown below, left). On March 14th, Thiot posted a photograph of his beard adorned with an assortment of pink flowers (shown below, right).[2]



On July 11th, the Tumblr[3] blog “Fuck Yeah Flower Beards” was launched. In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the flower beard trend, including Demilked,[4] The Huffington Post,[5] Esquire,[6]BuzzFeed,[13] Hello Giggles[7] and Mic.[8]
